During Ocean Drilling Program Leg 149, five sites were drilled on the Iberia Abyssal Plain, west of the Iberian Peninsula. Five holes (Holes 897A, 897C, 898A, 899A, and 900A) yielded Pliocene-Pleistocene sediments, which consist mainly of turbidites. Among these, Holes 897C and 898A yielded significant Pliocene-Pleistocene sediments that provided a high-resolution nannofossil biostratigraphy essential for locating paleomagnetic polarity events and for interpreting the age and frequency of turbidite sedimentation in the Iberia Abyssal Plain.Pliocene-Pleistocene nannofossils...
