Stable oxygen isotope composition of planktonic foraminifera in the Canary Islands region, supplement to: Wilke, Iris; Meggers, Helge; Bickert, Torsten (2009): Depth habitats and seasonal distributions of recent planktic foraminifers in the Canary Islands region (29°N) based on oxygen isotopes. Deep Sea Research Part I: Oceanographic Research Papers, 56(1), 89-106

Iris Wilke, Helge Meggers & Torsten Bickert
Seasonal depth stratified plankton tows, sediment traps and core tops taken from the same stations along a transect at 29°N off NW Africa are used to describe the seasonal succession, the depth habitats and the oxygen isotope ratios (delta18O(shell)) of five planktic foraminiferal species. Both the delta18O(shell) and shell concentration profiles show variations in seasonal depth habitats of individual species. None of the species maintain a specific habitat depth exclusively within the surface mixed layer...
