We infer variations in paleoproductivity and eolian input at ODP Site 1082 in the Walvis Basin from stable oxygen isotope compositions of the planktonic foraminifera Globorotalia inflata, total organic carbon mass accumulation rates (TOC MAR), and X-ray fluorescence analyses of Fe content. The most pronounced paleoclimatic changes correspond to the time at about 0.9 Ma, when glacial conditions in the northern hemisphere (NH) led to the onset of pronounced 100-kyr glacial-interglacial cycles. We used Fe...
