Diatoms occur at Site 768 in the equatorial Indian Ocean in three intervals: (1) Quaternary to upper Pliocene, (2) lower Miocene to upper Oligocene, and (3) upper Campanian. The diatom assemblages are documented for each of these intervals. Similarities between the diatom flora in the equatorial Pacific and at Site 758 allow diatom zonations established in the equatorial Pacific to be used at Site 758, and the presence of a hiatus of about 3-m.y. duration...
