Unconsolidated sediments recovered at Site 740 include approximately 23 m of interbedded siliceous ooze and silty clay (pebbly mud), which was tentatively assigned a late Pliocene to Quaternary age by shipboard scientists. In order to clarify the chronology of this sequence, six samples of siliceous ooze were analyzed for their 14C content using the University of Arizona Tandem Accelerator Mass-Spectrometer (TAMS) facility. Uncorrected ages ranged from 1915 ± 50 yr B.P. (0.21 mbsf) to 11,140...
