Summary
Abstract: Chesapeake Bay Foraminifera Counts and Paleosalinity Estimates. Age model
developed from lead-210, cesium-137, pollen stratigraphy, and C-14 dates.
Salinity estimates in ppt based on the relative proportions of salinity
sensitive benthic foraminifera described in Cronin et al. 2000 Geology.

ABSTRACT
Salinity oscillations caused by multidecadal climatic variability had major
impacts on the ... View entire text
