Taxonomic notes on the abyssal agglutinated benthic foraminifera of the HEBBLE area (lower Nova Scotian Continental Rise)
Kaminski, Michael A.
MetadataShow full item record
Eighty species and morphological varieties of agglutinated benthic foraminifera were identified in sediments from the HEBBLE Site (4800 m depth) and the HEBBLE Shallow Site (4185 m) on the lower Nova Scotian Continental Rise. Details of their morphology and classification are included in descriptions of each species, and representative specimens are illustrated using SEM, light microscopy, and X-radiography.

Lynch-Stieglitz, Jean; Curry, William B.; Oppo, Delia W.; Ninnemann, Ulysses S.; Charles, Christopher D.; Munson, Jenna (American Geophysical Union, 2006-10-03)The geostrophic shear associated with the meridional overturning circulation is reflected in the difference in density between the eastern and western margins of the ocean basin. Here we examine how the density difference ...
Deciphering isotopic signals of monsoon-induced upwelling in foraminifera from the Western Arabian sea sediment trap Stuart, Dana R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-03)Isotopic analyses have been made on four species of foraminifera collected with a PARFLUX Mark VI sediment trap in the Arabian Sea during the 1986 and 1987 monsoons. Two of the species are non-spinose thermocline dwellers ...
