Preservation: VG = very good, G = good, M = moderate, P = poor. Abundance: D = dominant, A = abundant, C = common, F = few, R = rare, P = present. Foraminifer zonations based on Wade et al. (2011), ? = uncertainty. For more specific preservation and abundance definitions, refer to “Paleontology and biostratigraphy” in the “Methods” chapter (Expedition 329 Scientists, 2011a).
