Summary: A brief summary of macro- and micro-fossil distribution throughout the Cenozoic epochs in the Ross Sea region. This inventory of the Ross Sea region, where future drilling by ANDRILL (ANtarctic DRILLing) is planned, demonstrates how little data there was prior to the Cape Roberts Project and how much data still needs to be collected.
