Summary
Abstract: This data set includes calcareous nannofossil counts from samples collected
during the Cape Roberts Project drilling in the Victria Land Basin. Specimens
were identified to species and counted to create the census data. This census
data were analyzed to determine the biostratigraphic placement of the samples.
Additional analyses of the census data indicated that these assemblages of
phytoplankton inhabited extreme marginal conditions, resulting in species-poor,
highly-dominated paleocommunities.
