Notes: Globorotalia inflata does not occur at Site U1307, so G. inflata Zone and Globigerina bulloides Zone could not be verified by their zonal markers directly. Abundance: D = dominant, A = abundant, C = common, F = few, R = rare, P = present, B = barren. Preservation: G = good, M = moderate, P = poor (see “Foraminifers” in the “Site U1302–U1308 methods” chapter). s = sinistral, d = dextral.
