Bulk components and planktonic foraminifera of the Chilean continental margin, supplement to: Mohtadi, Mahyar; Hebbeln, Dierk (2004): Mechanisms and variations of the paleoproductivity off northern Chile (24°S–33°S) during the last 40,000 years. Paleoceanography, 19(2), PA2023

Mahyar Mohtadi & Dierk Hebbeln
A multiparameter investigation including organic carbon, carbonate, opal, and planktic foraminifera was carried out on five sediment cores from the coastal upwelling area between 24°S and 33°S along the Peru-Chile Current to reconstruct the history of the paleoproductivity and its driving mechanisms during the last 40,000 years. Inferred from our data, we conclude that the Antarctic Circumpolar Current as the main nutrient source in this region mainly drives the productivity by its latitudinal shifts associated...
