By Anthony T. S. Ramsay

The built-in technique utilized within the research presents a reassessment of the stratigraphy formerly validated for the 18 holes which were re-examined. The authors set out the present figuring out of Southern Ocean biochronology and provides a synthesis of biostratigraphical and polarity information from past paintings. the quantity may be a beneficial reference for studying the palaeoceanography, climatic background and tectonic evolution of the Southern Ocean. It additionally presents a framework for courting oceanography and sedimentary occasions which are used as proxies for analyzing the glacial heritage of Antarctica.

Example text

A siliceous component varies throughout the Miocene to upper Eocene section (Barker et al. 1988). A good palaeomagnetic polarity reversal record was obtained by both shipboard and shorebase analysis (Barker et al. 1988; Spiess 1990). Diatoms, calcareous nannofossils and radiolarians are present throughout the sequence. Diatoms are present through the Pleistocene to Oligocene sequence. Abundance and preservation varies with common, moderately preserved diatoms present in the Pleistocene to upper Miocene sediments; few, moderately preserved diatoms recorded in the middle and lower Miocene; and rare, poorly preserved diatoms observed in the Oligocene (Gersonde & Burckle 1990).

A good palaeomagnetic polarity reversal record was obtained by both shipboard and shorebase analysis (Barker et al. 1988; Spiess, 1990). Diatoms, calcareous nannofossils and radiolarians are present throughout the sequence. Moderately preserved, common to abundant diatoms are present throughout the Quaternary to lower Miocene sediments. Diatom abundance decreases with rare and poorly preserved organisms present in this interval (Gersonde & Burckle 1990). Calcareous nannofossils are rare in the Quaternary and upper Pliocene sediments, absent in the middle to lower Pliocene, common to abundant throughout the Miocene and abundant in the Oligocene.
