Comparison between Cores I and M in the vicinity of the upper Olduvai polarity reversal. Lithofacies, volume magnetic susceptibility (κ), and oxygen isotope fluctuations based on measurements in Globorotalia inflata18O) and in situ paleomagnetic inclinations are shown in ad for Core I and eh for Core M, respectively. i Correlation of the peaks of the magnetic susceptibility between the two cores, using the depths from Core M. j Correlation of in situ paleomagnetic inclinations between the two cores, using the same depth as i. k The LR04 benthic δ18O stack (Lisiecki and Raymo 2005). Abbreviations shown on the lithology columns are the following: m mudstone (mud content ≥70 %), sm sandy mudstone (70 % > mud content ≥ 45 %), fs fine-grained sandstone, ft fine tuff, ct coarse tuff, pt pumice-rich lapilli tuff.
