Faulted claystone, silty claystone, sandy silty claystone from late Pleistocene subunit IIC recovered from hole B at Site 863. This site is located at the base of the trench slope of the Chile Trench where the Chile Ridge is being subducted. One of the objectives of drilling at this site was to identify the structural fabrics and deformation caused by rift subduction.
The Glacial Interglacial Core Model contains evidence of a shift from an interglacial to a glacial period approximately 0.9 million years ago. This core can be loaned out for your educational needs.

This set of investigations focuses on the use of sedimentary facies (lithologies interpreted to record particular depositional environments) to interpret paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatic changes in Neogene sediment cores from the Antarctic margin. In Part 12.1, you wil
