Benthic foraminifera in surface sediments of the Arabian Sea, supplement to: Heinz, Petra; Hemleben, Christoph (2003): Regional and seasonal variations of recent benthic deep-sea foraminifera in the Arabian Sea. Deep Sea Research Part I: Oceanographic Research Papers, 50(3), 435-447

Petra Heinz & Christoph Hemleben
Assemblages of living deep-sea benthic foraminifera, their densities, vertical distribution pattern, and diversity, were investigated in the intermonsoon period after the northeast monsoon in the Arabian Sea in spring 1997. Foraminiferal numbers show a distinct gradient from north to south, with a maximum of 623 foraminifera in 50 cm**3 at the northern site. High percentages of small foraminifera were found in the western and northern part of the Arabian Sea. Most stations show a typical...
