Leg 108 cored 12 sites in the eastern equatorial Atlantic and along the northwest African continental margin to investigate the late Neogene and Quaternary oceanographic and climatic history of these regions. Sediments recovered during Leg 108 provide in part a high-resolution stratigraphic record for the upper Pliocene through Holocene interval. The bio- and magnetostratigraphy are intercalibrated where possible and provide a useful chronostratigraphy for paleoceanographic studies.
