This study provides the first detailed documentation of calcareous nannofossil assemblages in Eocene subantarctic Eltanin piston cores recovered from the southeast Pacific Ocean. These Eltanin cores are important because they have been reported to contain ice-rafted quartz. The present study confirms early and middle Eocene ages for the cores and dates them more precisely using calcareous nannofossils. Semiquantitative study of the nannoflora indicates that they are of a warmer water character than those from the...
