    Terrigenous sediment is sediment that originally came from some sort of land mass.  Basically, rocks from land are naturally battered and bruised by weather and the ocean.  This rock can break off into smaller pieces and continues to be broken down.  This rock then is carried into the ocean and becomes sediment on the bottom or is broken down enough to be released as ions into the ocean.  Terrigenous sediment is usually supplied by rivers, and usually is derived from mud, silt, and rocks.
