Abstract

Upper Eocene to lowest Miocene sediments recovered at DSDP Site 522 in the S Atlantic Ocean allow direct calibration of magnetostratigraphy and calcareous plankton biostratigraphy. The results from Site 522 show that the Eocene/Oligocene boundary occurs in the reversed interval of magnetic Chron C13 (= C13R) and that the Oligocene/Miocene boundary probably occurs in the upper part of Chron C6C.-Authors
