A high-resolution (10-20 kyr) record of variations in CaCO3 content and dissolution was established for latest Cretaceous (last 0.7 Myr) deep-sea sediments from the South Atlantic Ocean (DSDP Site 516 from the Rio Grande Rise, and sites 525 and 527 from the Walvis Ridge). The degree of fragmentation of planktonic foraminifera (DFP) was used as a measure of calcite dissolution. High negative correlations between DFP and other independent measures of carbonate dissolution (percentage of sand...
