Drilling on the Kerguelen Plateau during Leg 120 cored the most complete, best preserved record of the Late Cretaceous of the Southern Ocean to date. Two calcareous pelagic sedimentary sections (Sites 747 and 750) provide a record from the upper Turonian(?)-lower Coniacian through the Maestrichtian. Two major disconformities interrupt the record: upper Coniacian-lower Santonian and mid-Campanian. Site 748 contains a Campanian-Maestrichtian record of neritic sedimentation dominated by nannofossil-bearing, intermittently silicified, glauconitic bioclastic grainstones to wackestones....
