Recent biogenic sedimentation on the Antarctic continental margin
Floral and geochemical analyses were conducted on sinking and suspended particulate matter, and on sea ice and recent sediment samples from the northwestern Weddell Sea--northern Antarctic Peninsula area, and McMurdo Sound, ...
Late Quaternary sediment accumulations and foraminiferal populations on the slopes of Gladden Basin (offshore Belize) and southern Ashmore Trough (Gulf of Papua) mixed siliciclastic-carbonate systems
The Belize margin, in the western Caribbean Sea, and Ashmore Trough, in the western Gulf of Papua, represent modern tropical mixed siliciclastic-carbonate depositional systems where significant masses of both river born ...
Stratigraphy and chemical sedimentology of Cenozoic biogenic sediments from the Pisco and Sechura Basins, Peru
Neogene sediments rich in siliceous microfossils, phosphate, and organic carbon formed simultaneously in many basins around the Pacific. This work focuses on these (and similar older) sediments from two basins of western ...
Marine geology and geophysics of the western South Orkney Plateau, Antarctica: Implications for Quaternary glacial history, tectonics, and paleoceanography
Piston cores and single-channel seismic profiles were collected from the western South Orkney Plateau to investigate glacial history, survey the seismic stratigraphy, and test the feasibility of paleoceanographic interpretation ...
Eastern Venezuela Basin: Sequence stratigraphy and structural evolution
A regional study has been carried out within the Eastern Venezuela Basin and its offshore continuation to the Orinoco Delta and the Barbados Accretionary Complex. The Eastern Venezuela Basin and its offshore continuation ...
