Figure F13. Expedition 320 and selected ODP Leg 199 drill sites plotted against the Pacific Equatorial Age Transect (PEAT) timescale. Sites are plotted approximately ordered by site longitude and basement age, with younger and more eastern sites toward the right. Crustal ages are listed underneath each stratigraphic column. Carbonate accumulation events (CAE) appear as defined by Lyle et al. (2005). MECO = Middle Eocene Climatic Optimum.
