Planktonic foraminiferal faunas from surface-sediment samples from the South China Sea and the western Pacific, supplement to: Pflaumann, Uwe; Jian, Zhimin (1999): Modern distribution patterns of planktonic foraminifera in the South China Sea and western Pacific: a new transfer technique to estimate regional sea-surface temperatures. Marine Geology, 156(1-4), 41-83

Uwe Pflaumann & Zhimin Jian
We present 30 new planktonic foraminiferal census data of surface sediment samples from the South China Sea, recovered between 630 and 2883 m water depth. These new data, together with the 131 earlier published data sets from the western Pacific, are used for calibrating the SIMMAX-28 transfer function to estimate past sea-surface temperatures. This regional SIMMAX method offers a slightly better understanding of the marginal sea conditions of the South China Sea than the linear...
