RADIOLARIAN BIOSTRATIGRAPHIC AND PALEOCEANOGRAPHIC STUDIES OF MONTEREY-LIKE ROCKS OF THE HUMBOLDT BASIN, NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
The middle and upper Miocene sediments of the Humboldt Basin, northern California, have been investigated for the presence of radiolarian fauna. The vast majority of the radiolaria found are cold water indicators, however ...
TERRIGENOUS, BIOGENIC, AND VOLCANOCLASTIC SEDIMENTATION PATTERNS OF THE BRANSFIELD STRAIT AND BAYS OF THE NORTHERN ANTARCTIC PENINSULA: IMPLICATIONS FOR QUATERNARY GLACIAL HISTORY
A marine sedimentologic investigation was conducted on the northern Antarctic Peninsula continental margin. The data base included piston cores, surficial sediments, and high resolution seismic reflection profiles. The ...
Sedimentary facies and evolution of Late Pleistocene to recent coastal lithosomes on the east Texas shelf
Examination of Late Pleistocene to recent coastal lithosomes on the east Texas continental shelf can help refine current models aimed at understanding how coastal environments respond to a variety of forcing mechanisms ...
Late quaternary periplatform sediments and paleoenvironmental analysis of Pedro Channel, northeastern Nicaragua rise, Caribbean Sea
Using four periplatform sediment cores of intermediate water depth (900 to 1400 m) from the western Caribbean Sea, an investigation was conducted to ascertain the difference in cyclicity between the late-Brunhes Mode and ...
Oxygen isotope analysis of corals from the Gulf of California and Gulf of Panama: Application and implications for coral-based paleoclimate reconstruction
Oxygen isotope analyses of corals from the Gulf of California and Gulf of Panama are calibrated with environmental parameters. Uncertainty in the isotopic composition of sea water in the Gulf of California prohibits strong ...
Calcium carbonate dissolution patterns at intermediate water depths of the tropical oceans during the Quaternary
This study presents mineralogic and stable isotopic records generated for piston cores and Ocean Drilling Program holes recovered from intermediate water depths (500 to 2500 meters) near carbonate platforms around the ...
