Cosmopolitan and low-latitude silicoflagellate distributions determined from Deep Sea Drilling Project cores are synthesized into a sequence of 23 biostratigraphic zones and subzones for tropical and subtropical ocean areas. The stratigraphic relation of major morphologic changes in silicoflagellates from all areas is summarized. Two new Neogene subzones, one new Paleogene subzone, one new species, and one new variety are defined: Dictyocha perlaevis ornata Subzone, Dictyocha neonautica Subzone, Distephanus speculum haliomma Subzone, Dictyocha neonautica Bukry, n. sp., and D. neonautica var. cocosensis Bukry, n. var.
Figures & Tables
At the present the Glomar Challenger has drilled over 500 holes over the world ocean, involving hundreds of scientists from dozens of countries. This volume is intended as a review of some of theimportant results from the most comprehensive, ambitious and successful earth-bound geologic project ever undertaken. The symposium upon which this volume originated was held April 4, 1979 at the SEPM/AAPG Annual Meeting in Houston. No comprehensive synthesis of all aspects of the DSDP has appeared, and the topic coverage in this volume is biased towards the sediments and fossils, and their significance for certain aspects of earth history – paleogeography, bathymetry, climatology, oceanography, ecology, environments – all in keeping with the audience of sedimentary geologists.
