Figure F4. Pliocene–Pleistocene stratigraphy of the NWS and its relationship to various tectonic and climatic events. Horizontal shaded bars = likely periods of Indonesian seaway restriction. The benthic foraminifer δ18O curve is from Lisiecki and Raymo (2005). The NWS Indo-Pacific foraminiferal species distribution (from cuttings) is from Gallagher et al. (2009) and preliminary unpublished results from the Fisher-1 well (adjacent to Site NWS-3A). Sea-surface temperature data are from Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Hole 763A (Karas et al., 2011) (Fig. F1). ITF = Indonesian Throughflow.
