Late Cretaceous-Early Neogene oxygen and carbon isotope record of the Indian Ocean, supplement to: Oberhänsli, Hedi (1986): Latest Cretaceous-Early Neogene oxygen and carbon isotopic record at DSDP sites in the Indian Ocean. Marine Micropaleontology, 10(1-3), 91-115

Hedi Oberhänsli
Stable isotopic data of calcareous nannofossil, monogeneric and monospecific planktic and benthic foraminifera from five Indian Ocean DSDP sites (212, 217, 220, 237, and 253), leads to the following paleoclimatic and paleoceanographic conclusions: - The latest Cretaceous oxygen isotopic record implies a cooling (3-4°C) during the Maastrichtian. At the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary only a minor warming (about 2°C) has been recorded. The parallel delta13C decrease of more than 1‰ indicates a significant decrease in productivity. -...
