Summary: Over 400 coccolith samples were investigated by electron-microscope and light-microscope techniques. Following a brief summary of the coccolith stratigraphy for each drilling site, age-diagnostic species in selected samples are listed, and the geologic ages determined are summarized graphically. Electron micrographs of 42 coccoliths are included.
