Summary: This report is divided into two parts. The first part gives information on the overall nature, paleoenvironmental implications, and biostratigraphy of the calcareous nannofossils identified from the first three sites drilled on Leg 21. The second part deals with some of the main biostratigraphic, paleoecologic, and taxonomic conclusions reached as a result of this leg, which was the first warm-water marginal-sea cruise by the DV Glomar Challenger.
