Abstract

Shatsky Rise is a medium-sized, large igneous province in the Pacific Ocean that serves as a pedestal for an impressive 140-million-year package of pelagic sediment. The primary objectives of Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Leg 198 were to use cores obtained from these sediments to understand long-term transitions into and out of the warm Cretaceous and early Paleogene climate "greenhouse", as well as transient but critical events that involved major changes in oceanic environments, geochemical cycling, and marine biotas.
