The Tertiary paleoceanography of the North Atlantic Ocean is known in greater detail than that of earlier periods because the upper part of the geologic record is more accessible to geologic sampling and geophysical observation. The Tertiary record also appears more complex, partially because of the greater data density. Nonetheless, there are large segments of this record about which we know relatively little. In particular, the Paleocene and Oligocene sedimentary records are not well represented on the shallow continental margin because erosion during sea-level low- stands removed much of the section. Equivalent records in the deep basin are poorly...
