Summary
Abstract: The oxygen isotopic record obtained from Globigerina bulloides, Globorotalia
inflata and Neogloboquadrina pachyderma (s.) was analysed for 5 sediment traps
moored in the Southern Ocean and Southwest Pacific. The traps extend from
Subtropical to the Polar Frontal environments, providing the first analysis of
seasonal foraminiferal d18O records from these latitudes. Comparison between
the ... View entire text
