Two sediment cores retrieved from the continental slope in the Benguela Upwelling System, GeoB 1706 (19°33.7'S 11°10.5'E) and GeoB 1711 (23°18.9'S, 12°22.6'E), reveal striking variations in planktonic foraminiferal abundances during the last 160,000 years. These fluctuations are investigated to assess changes in the intensity and position of the upwelling centres off Namibia. Four species make up over 95% of the variation within the core, and enable the record to be divided into episodes characterized by...
