Figure F8. Overview of lithostratigraphy above igneous basement, Expedition 324. Sites arranged from left to right in geographical order. Age deduced from biostratigraphy indicated to the right of each column. Sites are arranged vertically to suggest general relative distribution of ages at all sites (see "Paleontology" in the "Methods" chapter. Early Cretaceous = Berriasian to Albian, Late Cretaceous = Cenomanian to Campanian, Cen = middle Cenozoic. Note hiatus or lack of recovery between Campanian and middle Cenozoic at Site U1348. Gray shaded area = gap between last datable sediment and top of igneous basement (or top of the volcaniclastic sequence, Unit III, at Site U1348).
