Figure 3. Interpreted version of part of Oc270 Profile 885, a dip MCS profile that runs through Site 1071 and within ~150 m of Site 1072. The approximate total depths (TDs) penetrated in Holes 1071A-1071E, 1071F-1071G and Holes 1072A-1072B are indicated (vertical white bars), as are the locations of prominent stratigraphic discontinuities/sequence boundaries (dashed lines), which were identified by tying previously interpreted regional Ew90-09 profiles to the higher resolution Oc270 profiles (Christie-Blick et al., 1992; Mountain et al., 1996; Austin et al., 1996). The "s" designation following the "pp" (provisionally Pliocene-Pleistocene) and "m" (provisionally Miocene) sequence boundary identifications are meant to distinguish the shelf sequence boundaries, targeted for sampling and logging by Leg 174A, from similarly labeled surfaces calibrated on the slope by Leg 150 (Mountain, Miller, Blum, et al., 1994).
