The three sites (717, 718, and 719) drilled on the distal Bengal Fan during ODP Leg 116 cored turbidite sediments almost exclusively. Calcareous nannofossils were recovered sporadically and, although all of them probably have been redeposited, it is possible to date the sediments at all three sites with reasonable confidence. Site 717 penetrated the uppermost middle Miocene Catinaster coalitus highest occurrence datum and represents the most nearly continuous succession of turbidites. Site 718 penetrated the...
