Only sample of Jensen_Palisades-12 and 13 (what it is labelled as in Table 1 of Jensen and others, 2013). Yellowish diffuse bed up to 0.5 cm thick, in a cryoturbated peaty bed ~1.2 m below OCt at Site IB4. Not found in association with P11, thus their stratigraphic order is not clear. Glass morphology dominated by platy glass, tricuspate shards and thick-walled pumice.
