The built-in process utilized within the examine offers a reassessment of the stratigraphy formerly tested for the 18 holes which were re-examined. The authors set out the present realizing of Southern Ocean biochronology and provides a synthesis of biostratigraphical and polarity facts from past paintings. the quantity can be a worthwhile reference for reading the palaeoceanography, climatic heritage and tectonic evolution of the Southern Ocean. It additionally offers a framework for courting oceanography and sedimentary occasions which are used as proxies for analyzing the glacial historical past of Antarctica.

This study suggests that the stratigraphical section is more continuous than previously recognized. Gersonde & Burckle (1990) and Gersonde et al (1990) identified seven hiatuses in the Quaternary to Oligocene interval based on integrated bio- and magnetostratigraphy. 0mbsf approximate hiatuses identified in this study. 8mbsf reflects differences in the interpretation of chronozonal assignment of the polarity reversals. 7 mbsf reflect differences in biostratigraphical interpretation. Spiess (1990) identified five hiatuses in the upper 140m of Hole 113-689B based on pattern recognition of the polarity record.

D, diatoms; R, radiolaria; N, calcareous nannofossils. Emboldened events indicate primary biostratigraphical events recognized in this study. The polarity record shown represents the original interpretation calibrated to the GPTS of Cande & Kent (1995) and the interpretation from this study correlated with the GPTS of Cande & Kent (1995).
