The abundance and quality of data generated by such programs as the JOIDES Deep Sea Drilling Project, coupled with the intensified search for energy and mineral resources on the continental shelves, have, in recent years, greatly increased our knowledge of the geology of both the continental margins and the ocean basins. Concomitant with this new knowledge has been the heightened awareness that a stabilized stratigraphic framework is necessary to aid in delineating the geologic history of the basins involved. As Cook (1975, p. 818) has pointed out “In oceanic studies it has been common practice to present data and...
