The Caribbean carbonate crash at the middle to late Miocene transition and the establishment of the modern global thermohaline circulation
The Caribbean carbonate crash was a time of increased regional carbonate dissolution at the middle to late Miocene transition. It is marked by five dissolution episodes, occurring from 12-10 Ma, characterized by significant ...
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 ...
The motion between Nubia and Somalia from magnetic anomaly and fracture zone crossings flanking the Southwest Indian Ridge
Previous reconstructions for anomaly 5 and older anomalies flanking the Southwest Indian Ridge (SWIR) have indicated no statistically significant evidence for motion between the Nubian and Somalian plates. Recently, an ...
Regulation of fluorine chemistry and carbonate fluorapatite stability in deep sediments beneath the Peruvian upwelling zone
Fluorine is abundant in the oceans, and carbonate fluorapatite precipitation in marine sediment is a significant removal mechanism. A paucity of data has led to several misconceptions of fluorine geochemistry and carbonate ...
