Figure F5. Sedimentation rates at sites drilled during Expedition 306. Open squares = magnetostratigraphy-based ages, solid circles = nannofossil-based ages, solid triangles = foraminifer-based ages, solid squares = diatom-based ages, solid diamonds = radiolarian-based ages. Mean sedimentation rates are calculated for straight-line segments. Unreliable points are faded and not used for calculation of sedimentation rates. These points are events that may be reworked, may not represent true first or last occurrences because of distribution limits within different water masses, or resulted in incongruous depths when plotted on the mcd scale.
