Benthic foraminifera in gravity and piston cores from two sites of the northern and southern slopes of the South China Sea (SCS) were analyzed to evaluate changes in surface productivity and deep-water mass characteristics over the last 40,000 years. Our observations suggest that changes in organic carbon flux, that is food supply, and chemical and/or physical properties of the ambient water mass may be the two primary and intercorrelated factors controlling the distribution patterns of...
