Placement of previously published bulk and benthic foraminifera stable carbon isotope data for Upper Cretaceous and Lower Paleogene sediment at DSDP Site 577 according to composite depth scale and an updated time scale (Westerhold et al., 2008, 2012). Isotope data were reported by Miller et al. (1987) and Pak and Miller (1992). DEPTH, sediment is the depth [mbsf] reported by Pak and Miller (1993).
