Abstract

Drilling on the Goban Spur in the northern Bay of Biscay (Irish continental margin), penetrated an apparently continuous section of upper Eocene-lower Oligocene nannofossil chalks. The Eocene-Oligocene boundary as identified by nannofossils does not coincide with that recognized using planktonic foraminifers.-from Authors
