Planktonic foraminiferal diversity, equitability and biostratigraphic analysis of samples from Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Leg 122, Hole 762C show that in general, cool water conditions prevailed during the latest Campanian–Maastrichtian in the eastern Indian Ocean. This is indicated by planktonic foraminiferal assemblages characterized by low species diversity and equitability with abundant rugoglobigerinids and heterohelicids. Archaeoglobigerinids, globigerinelloids, hedbergellids, and long-ranging double-keeled globotruncanids are also present in varying abundance but single-keeled forms occur rarely and sporadically.Identification of...
