The underlined dates are those used to build the initial age model of Sun 2-1, and the ages of the organic-enriched layers in Sun 2-1 can be calculated by interpolation from the Ca-based chronology and then transferred to core SM 16 4-3 by correlation based on clr (Ni + Cu + inc). The ages of events are expressed in terms of Julian days in each year converted into decimal numbers for detailed fine tuning the chronology of the last 90 years.
