In sediments from Holes ODP 1038A and 1038H, drilled near the hot springs at Central Hill, Escanaba Trough (Gorda Ridge), redistribution of major elements occurs during the water-rock interaction. Contents of Si, Fe, Mg, Ca, Na and K have changed in altered sediments. In this process, an increase/decrease in contents of major elements in altered sediments shows a decrease/increase in their contents in fluids. The irregular distribution of major elements in altered sediments resembles a layer pie, which reflects the existence of lateral flows of hydrothermal fluids.
