JAMSTEC Hole 902-C9001C, S. ellipsoides Zone (Pleistocene of Japan)

Where: Japan (41.2° N, 142.2° E: paleocoordinates 41.2° N, 142.2° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: Spongoliva ellipsoides nannofossil zone, Middle Pleistocene (0.8 - 0.1 Ma)

• "The core provided a continuous record from marine isotope stage (MIS) 18 (750 ka) to the present, a period that spanned the Brunhes normal polarity epoch (0–740 ka). The age model of this core was established through measurement of the stable oxygen isotopes of benthic foraminifera and calcareous nannofossil datums (Domitsu et al. 2011)." (Matsuzaki et al. 2014)

•"The stratigraphical interval between sample 13H-6 at 40.5–49.5 cm (118 mbsf) and 8H-6 at 42–48 cm (70.85 mbsf) in the 902-C9001C core. This zone covers the period from 209 to 131 ka." (Matsuzaki et al. 2014)

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; lithology not reported

Size class: microfossils

Collection methods: Repository: Department of Geology and Paleontology, Tohoku University Graduate School of Science, Sendai, Japan
