Summary: The biostratigraphic results of an examination of the Cenozoic foraminiferal faunas in cores from the seven sites drilled and cored in the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean during Leg 1 of the Project are discussed. A summary of the significant foraminiferal elements at each site is followed by a comparison between sites where pertinent. Separate discussions on average rates of sedimentation are presented, if they have a bearing on estimated positions of geologic boundaries and correlation of biostratigraphic intervals. The scheme proposed by Blow (1969) has been used to assign core intervals to planktonic foraminiferal zones.
