Lisa Tauxe (Paleomagnetist, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, USA) and Giancarlo Scardia (center) (Paleomagnetist/Stratigraphic Correlator, Universidade Estadual Paulista, Brazil) examine the “spliced section” between Holes U1456A and U1456C with Mitch Lyle (left) (Sedimentologist/Stratigraphic Correlator, Oregon State University, USA). The role of the stratigraphic correlator is to use physical properties measurements from the core, together with linescan digital images, to composite together a complete section where gaps between cores in one hole are filled by intervals cored in another hole.
