Foraminifera from the lower part of borehole 63 -01/08 were extremely rare and probably reworked from the shelf area. Reworked Palaeocene foraminifera and coalified wood were also seen. At and above 0.42-0.45m foraminifera became common and there was a slight increase in diversity towards the top of the hole. Cold water sinistrally coiled Neogloboquadrina pachderma are abundant throughout and the benthos is characterised by Planulina ariminensis and Oridorsalis umbonata. These deeper water species are characteristic of water depth in excess of c. 500m. Possible warming was present at and above 0.18-0.21m
