Figure F15. Site 1262 (A) core recovery, (B) age-depth model, and (C) linear sedimentation rate (LSR) and mass accumulation rate (MAR) sampled at 1-m.y. intervals. Rectangles in (B) = condensed intervals and/or unconformities as constrained by biostratigraphic data. Horizontal lines and roman numerals in (B) = lithologic units and subunits. The highest MAR values in (C) are the total MARs; the lowest values are the "background" noncarbonate (noncarb) MARs (typically <0.1 g/cm2/k.y.), illustrating that mass accumulation at this site is controlled by carbonate deposition. Gaps in MAR estimates exist where no dry density and/or carbonate data were available for the 1-m.y. sampling interval (typically in condensed intervals). FO = first occurrence, LO = last occurrence.
