Figure F21. Carbonate content and coarse fraction variations for Sites 1263, 1265, 1266, and 1262, and color reflectance L* variation for Site 1267 for the period 30–35 Ma. The abrupt increase in carbonate content associated with the strongest foraminifer dissolution above the Eocene/Oligocene boundary leads the earliest Oligocene Glacial Maximum (EOGM) by ~100 k.y., while the recovery of the foraminiferal preservation lags behind the EOGM by ~400 k.y. (Liu et al., 2004a). Data of the color reflectance L* are from the onboard data set (Zachos, Kroon, Blum, et al., 2004).
