Abstract

Drilling at five ODP sites (998 to 1002) in the Caribbean Sea has provided an excellent marine record representing nearly 80 m.y. of Earth history. Regional and global events can be analyzed: the mid-Campanian to lower Eocene section includes unique records of the K/T boundary and the 'late Paleocene thermal maximum'; the spectacular record of Eocene and Miocene explosive volcanism is unmatched in its magnitude and chronostratigraphic resolution; the spatial distribution of a middle/late Miocene minimum in carbonate accumulation ('carbonate crash') was extended from a regional anomaly in the Pacific to an interbasinal tropical phenomenon.
