Figure F11. Composite digital photographs of cores taken across the E/O boundary at Site 1218 using the shipboard GEOTEK digital imaging system. At Site 1218 (shallowest 42-Ma crust) it is clear that the EoceneOligocene carbonate transition is a two-step process. At Site 1219 (deeper 55-Ma crust) only one step can be observed.
