JAMSTEC Hole 902-C9001C, A. vinculata 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: Acanthodesmia vinculata nannofossil zone, Late/Upper Pleistocene (0.1 - 0.0 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 3H-4 at 42–48 cm (20.91 mbsf) and the top of core 902-C9001C (0 mbsf). This zone covers the period from 33 to 0 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
