Abstract: Eocene/Oligocene boundary paleoproductivity data from Ceara Rise,
Ocean Drilling Program Site 925: 4 12.25 N, 43 29 W, 3040m depth.

ABSTRACT (from the online documentation)
Paleoproductivity, nutrient burial and carbon cycling were
investigated across the Eocene/Oligocene (E/O) boundary (begin-end;
36.9 - 32.7 Ma at ~40-kyr resolution, timescale of Shackleton et
al. [1999]) at Ocean Drilling ... View entire text
