Investigation of Miocene foraminifera in sediment core CRP-1 from the Ross Sea, Antarctica, supplement to: Strong, C Percy; Webb, Peter-Noel (1998): Lower Miocene foraminifera from CRP-1 drillhole. Terra Antartica, 5(3), 515-520

A faunal comprising 18 foraminiferal taxa wa recovered from a suite of 52 core samples from lower Miocene sandstone, claystone and diamictite in the CRP-1 drillhole, Cape Roberts, Antarctica. The fauna is characterised by low foraminiferal abundance and diversity, the absence of planktics, and typically, the presence of Cribroelphidium sp. and/or Melonis spp. These factors indicate deposition in an inner shelf or nearshore environment. Many of the foraminifers found in CRP-1 also occure in the...
