Ninety-three samples from DSDP Leg 95, Sites 612 and 613, were examined for ostracodes to aid in the study of paleoceanography and paleodepth. In total, more than 25 genera were recovered. The most abundant and diverse ostracode assemblages were from the middle Eocene at both sites; lower and upper Eocene and Pliocene-Pleistocene assemblages were less abundant and were dominated by only three or four species.
The middle Eocene assemblages were the most diagnostic of paleoenvironment and suggest water depths of 1000 to 2000 m. These assemblages are similar to other middle Eocene assemblages known from the Caribbean and North Atlantic, and signify a relatively cosmopolitan fauna that inhabited moderately deep but relatively warm bottom waters.
