Summary: Sites 264 through 269 recovered sediments of the pelagic areas of the Southern Ocean while Sites 270 through 274 sampled the shallow Ross Sea environment. The diatom content and abundance vary with location and age and reflect differing sedimentological and environmental regimes through time. Site information, diatom range zones, and summaries of diatom abundance and preservation at each site are given. Piston core material collected by Eltanin is used in conjunction with DSDP samples to enable comparison of the Quaternary/Pliocene aged material on the basis of paleomagnetic information. The combined data are used in the establishment of a high latitude diatom stratigraphy.
