Summary: Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Leg 307 Site U1318 is one of the few relatively complete middle Miocene drillcores from the North Atlantic (Porcupine Basin, offshore southwestern Ireland). Using benthic foraminiferal stable carbon and oxygen isotopes, the existing age model for Site U1318 was improved. The stable isotope record displays globally recognized isotope events, used to revise the existing magnetostratigraphy-based age model. Two intervals contained misidentified magnetochrons which were corrected. The sampled interval now has a refined age of 12.75-16.60 Ma with a temporal resolution of c. 29 ka.
