                           Late Pleistocene ICS Stage
                         (Upper Pleistocene, Tarantian)
 
                 From 0.126 +/- 0.005 To 0.01143 +/- 0.00013 Ma
 
  Start Defined By:  Base of the Eemian interglacial stage (base of marine 
     isotope stage 5e) before final glacial episode of Pleistocene.
  End Defined By:  Excatly 10,000 Carbon-14 years BP.  Near the end of the 
     Younger Dryas cold spell.
 
  Start Based On:  Gradstein, Ogg, Smith, _A Geologic Time Scale 2004_
  End Based On:  CALIB Radiocarbon Calculator version 4.4 using INTCAL98 
     calibration curve.
