Summary: A relatively complete lower Paleocene to lower Oligocene sequence was recovered from the Southern High of Shatsky Rise at Sites 1209, 1210, and 1211. The sequence consists of nannofossil ooze and clayrich nannofossil ooze. Samples from these sites have been the target of intensive calcareous nannofossil biostratigraphic investigations. Calcareous nannofossils are moderately preserved in most of the recovered sequence, which extends from nannofossil Zones CP1 to CP16. Most traditional zonal markers are present; however, the rarity and poor preservation of key species in the uppermost Paleocene and lower Eocene inhibits zonal subdivision of part of this sequence.
