Summary: Composite depth scales and spliced records are routinely generated stratigraphic data sets on paleoceanographic Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) expeditions. They are constructed to generate a complete stratigraphic section that is more representative of a site than records from individual holes. Although sediments recovered from the three holes cored at Site U1396 during IODP Expedition 340 were correlated on board the JOIDES Resolution , a composite depth scale and complete stratigraphic section were not generated. After correction of the shipboard data for small positional errors, I used the shipboard acquired physical property data sets to recorrelate the stratigraphy and generate both a composite depth scale and a spliced record for Site U1396. Using the shipboard-generated paleomagnetic reversal record, I then estimated sedimentation rate at Site U1396 since ∼4.5 Ma.
