Figure F43. Linear sedimentation rates (LSRs) and total mass accumulation rates (MARs) at Leg 208 sites. The bulk of the MARs are due to carbonate deposition; noncarbonate accumulation rates are typically <0.1 g/cm2/k.y. (see Figs. F15, F19, F22, F25, F28, F32). The shaded rectangles highlight time intervals of relatively increased accumulation rates across the sites: the late Paleocene to early Eocene at all sites, the early Oligocene at some sites, and the Pliocene at most sites.
