Benthic foraminifera in surface sediments, South Atlantic, supplement to: Schmiedl, Gerhard; Mackensen, Andreas; Müller, Peter J (1997): Recent benthic foraminifera from the eastern South Atlantic Ocean: dependence on food supply and water masses. Marine Micropaleontology, 32(3-4), 249-287

Gerhard Schmiedl, Andreas Mackensen & Peter J Müller
Sixty surface sediment samples from the eastern South Atlantic Ocean including the Walvis Ridge, the Angola and Cape basins, and the Southwest African continental margin were analysed for their benthic foraminiferal content to unravel faunal distribution patterns and ecological preferences.Live (stained with Rose Bengal) and dead faunas were counted separately and then each grouped by Q-mode principal component analysis into seven principal faunal end-members. Then, multiple regression technique was used to correlate Recent assemblages with...
