Calcareous nannofossils occur in numerous layers within a thick volcaniclastic succession encountered on the Detroit Seamount. Nannofossils present in a given bed confirm a marine depositional environment for the bed, add to our understanding of depositional events occurring between times of lava flow, and contribute to the interpretation of the overall physical volcanological history of the seamount.
