Distribution of benthic foraminifera with related sedimentological hydrographic parameter in the eastern Weddell Sea, Antarctica, supplement to: Mackensen, Andreas; Grobe, Hannes; Kuhn, Gerhard; Fütterer, Dieter K (1990): Benthic foraminiferal assemblages from the eastern Weddell Sea between 68 and 73°S: distribution, ecology and fossilization potential.

Surface sediment samples taken with a vented box corer from the eastern Weddell Sea on four profiles perpendicular to the continental margin have been investigated for their benthic foraminiferal content. The live fauna was differentiated from empty tests comprising the foraminiferal death assemblage. Based on the dead assemblages, potential fossil assemblages were calculated to facilitate the analogy with late Neogene core material. Five distinct live assemblages inhabit the continental margin today. Six dead assemblages and...
