1. Sea-level fluctuations during the last glacial cycle.

    Nature 423(6942):853 (2003) PMID 12815427

    The last glacial cycle was characterized by substantial millennial-scale climate fluctuations, but the extent of any associated changes in global sea level (or, equivalently, ice volume) remains elusive. Highstands of sea level can be reconstructed from dated fossil coral reef terraces, and thes...
  2. Regional and seasonal variations of recent benthic deep-sea foraminifera in the Arabian Sea

    Deep Sea Research Part I: Oceanographic Researc... 50(3):435 (2003)

    Assemblages of living deep-sea benthic foraminifera, their densities, vertical distribution pattern, and diversity, were investigated in the intermonsoon period after the northeast monsoon in the Arabian Sea in spring 1997. Foraminiferal numbers show a distinct gradient from north to south,...
  3. Black Sea impact on the formation of eastern Mediterranean sapropel S1? Evidence from the Marmara Sea

    Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology 190:9 (2003)

    Water exchange between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea has been a major focus of the paleohydrography of the eastern Mediterranean. Glacial melt water released from the Black Sea is a potential factor in the formation of sapropel S1, an organic-rich sediment layer that accumulated d...
  4. Time-response of cultured deep-sea benthic foraminifera to different algal diets

    Deep Sea Research Part I: Oceanographic Researc... 49(3):517 (2002)

    The vertical distribution of benthic foraminifera in the surface sediment is influenced by environmental factors, mainly by food and oxygen supply. An experiment of three different time series was performed to investigate the response of deep-sea benthic foraminifera to simulated phytodetri...
  5. Distribution, biomass and diversity of benthic foraminifera in relation to sediment geochemistry in the Arabian Sea

    Deep Sea Research Part II: Topical Studies in O... 47(14):2913 (2000)

    The distribution, biomass, and diversity of living (Rose Bengal stained) deep-sea benthic foraminifera (>30 μm) were investigated with multicorer samples from seven stations in the Arabian Sea during the intermonsoonal periods in March and in September/October, 1995. Water depths of t...
  6. Benthic foraminiferal assemblages of late Aptian-early Albian black shale intervals in the Vocontian Basin, SE France

    Cretaceous Research 19(6):805 (1998)

    Benthic foraminiferal assemblages were analyzed from three black shale intervals in the upper Aptain to lower Albian of the Vocontian Basin, SE France based on Q-mode principal component analyses. Variations in the distribution patterns of benthic foraminifera around these events suggest di...
  7. Seasonal variation in the flux of euthecosomatous pteropods collected in a deep sediment trap in the Sargasso Sea

    Deep Sea Research Part A. Oceanographic Researc... 35(3):441 (1988)

    A 4-year series of sediment trap samples from a depth of 3.2 km in the Sargasso Sea (32°05′N, 64°15′W) has revealed seasonal variations in the flux of euthecosomatous pteropods. Total pteropod flux is related to seasonal variations of the total particulate and organic carbon flux with a lag...
  8. Formation and possible function of annulate lamellae in a planktic foraminifer

    Journal of Ultrastructure Research 81(3):341 (1982)

    The planktic foraminifer Hastigerina pelagica (d'Orbigny) offers a unique opportunity to study ultrastructural changes during gametogenesis because of its precise timing of gamete release. In early stages of gametogenesis, annulate lamellae are formed at Golgi complexes. Here, endopl...
