Figure F15. Carbonate content vs. preservation and abundance of calcareous microfossil groups for (A) Site U1332 and (B) Site U1334. Blue shading = wt% CaCO3, blue line = nannofossil preservation, purple crosses = abundance of coccolith taxon Helicosphaera (all from Hole A). Red shading = semiquantitative assessment of planktonic foraminifer abundance (percent of planktonics vs. other grains), red line = planktonic foraminifer preservation, orange line = benthic foraminifer preservation (all with compiled data from Holes A, B, and C). Preservation: G = good, M = medium, P = poor. Core composite images are from Hole A. CCSF-A = core composite depth.
