Summary
Abstract: A thick, apparently continuous section recording events of the latest
Paleocene thermal maximum in a neritic setting was drilled at Bass River State
Forest, New Jersey as part of ODP Leg 174AX (Miller, Sugarman, Browning, et
al., 1998). Integrated nannofossil and magneto-stratigraphy provides a firm
chronology supplemented by planktonic foraminiferal biostratigraphy. These
