A biostratigraphically complete upper Maestrichtian-Danian sequence was recovered at ODP Leg 119 Site 738 on the southern Kerguelen Plateau (62°S). Planktonic foraminifers are abundant and well to moderately preserved in all upper Maestrichtian samples to within 6 cm of the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary, where foraminifers are rare and poorly preserved due to increased sediment lithification. Lowermost Danian samples are also poorly preserved, but specimen abundance is sufficient for preliminary quantitative biostratigraphic analysis. Despite the poor foraminifer...
