Early Oligocene dinoflagellate cysts from the Upper Rhine Graben, supplement to: Pross, Jörg; Schmiedl, Gerhard (2002): Early Oligocene dinoflagellate cysts from the Upper Rhine Graben (SW Germany): paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatic implications. Marine Micropaleontology, 45(1), 1-24

Using principal component analysis and cyst diversity and equity trends, we can recognize four distinct dinoflagellate cyst (dinocyst) assemblages from four Rupelian (Early Oligocene) cores in the Mainz Embayment of the northern Rhine Graben (SW Germany). These assemblages are the Spiniferites ramosus (PC1), Thalassiphora pelagica (PC2), Homotryblium tenuispinosum (PC3), and Vozzhennikovia spinula (PC4) assemblages. The four cores provide an onshore–offshore transect in the Mainz Embayment. The H. tenuispinosum assemblage shows high factor loadings in proximal...
