Summary of 40Ar/39Ar results from sediment core CRP-2A (Table 1), supplement to: McIntosh, W C (2000): 40Ar/39Ar geochronology of tephra and volcanic clasts in CRP-2A, Victoria Land Basin, Antarctica. Terra Antartica, 7(4), 621-630

40Ar/39Ar analyses of tephra and clasts of volcanic rock provide age constraints for upper parts of the CRP-2A core. Single-crystal laser-fusion analyses of anorthoclase phenocrysts from three tephra-bearing layers yielded the most precise age constraints for CRP-2A. The dated tephra layers are: 1) a 2.7-m-thick interval of pumice and ash layers between 111.5 and 114.2 meters below sea floor (mbsf) (weighted mean age = 21.44 ± 0.05 Ma, +2.2); 2) a concentration of pumice near...
