This study involves samples of Santonian to Eocene age (Cores 516F-125 to 516F-38) taken from the Rio Grande Rise in the South Atlantic Ocean. These samples are from DSDP Site 516 occupied during Leg 72 of the Glomar Challenger (details given in site chapter, Site 516, this volume). Only Santonian to Paleocene cores have been well sampled, and analyses of the Eocene samples are preliminary results. Results of the trace element analyses (Mg, Sr, Mn, Ni, Fe, Na, K) of the carbonate fraction and CaCO3 percentage for each sample can be found in Renard and others (1983). Whole geochemical data are treated by the statistical method of correspondence analysis. Oxygen and carbon isotopic ratios measured on samples close to the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary are not used in this study.
