|Abstract:||In January 1968, members of the Hawaii
Institute of Geophysics recovered a sediment
core (S67-31) 110 cm long from the western
tropical Pacific at 05°03.5'N, 166°56.2'E (Fig.
1). The sediment was cored by free-fall device
in a water depth of 4,795 meters. This corer
caused relatively little disturbance to the sedimentary
layers of the core, which consist of thin
Quaternary deposits overlying Miocene with
well-preserved radiolarian assemblages. The
microfaunal sequence is documented herein.
