Patrick G Quilty
Over 200 species of benthic foraminifers are recorded from three Ocean Drilling Program sites on the Southern Kerguelen Plateau drilled during Leg 120. They represent environments of deposition from neritic to bathyal during the Cenomanian to Maestrichtian. Many species are left in open nomenclature.Analysis of planktonic percentage, dominance/diversity, and comparison of faunal composition and structure shows that at all sites there is strong evidence of deepening water with time.The sediments at Sites 747 and 750...
