37. MAGNETOSTRATIGRAPHY OF SEDIMENT
DRIFTS ON THE CONTINENTAL RISE
OF WEST ANTARCTICA (ODP LEG 178,
SITES 1095, 1096, AND 1101)1

ABSTRACT
We present revised magnetostratigraphic interpretations for Ocean
Drilling Program Sites 1095, 1096, and 1101, cored in sediment drifts
located off the Pacific margin of the Antarctic Peninsula. The revised in-
terpretations incorporate a variety of observations and results obtained
since the end of Leg 178, of which the most significant are new paleo-
magnetic measurements from U-channel samples, composite depth
scales that allow stratigraphic correlation between multiple holes cored
at a site, and revised biostratigraphic interpretations. The U-channel
data, which include more than 102,000 paleomagnetic observations
from more than 13,400 intervals along U-channel samples, are included
as electronic files. The magnetostratigraphic records at all three sites are
consistent with sedimentation being continuous over the intervals
