Coccolithophores in the Nordic Seas: comparison of living communities with surface sediment assemblages
Coccolithophores were investigated in both numerous plankton samples and surface sediments from across the entire Nordic Seas. Cell numbers of living coccolithophore communities are consistentlyExpand

The significance of extant coccolithophores as indicators of ocean water masses, surface water temperature, and palaeoproductivity: a review
Coccolithophores are one of the main groups of marine phytoplankton playing key roles in the marine eco-system as primary producers and in marine biogeochemistry. These organisms have gainedExpand

A filtration technique for quantitative studies of coccoliths
A quantitative preparation method is described in order to enable high precision coccoliths analysis with the scanning electron microscope (SEM). This technique is fast and easy to apply and veryExpand

Global marine plankton functional type biomass distributions: coccolithophores
Abstract. Coccolithophores are calcifying marine phytoplankton of the class Prymnesiophyceae. They are considered to play an import role in the global carbon cycle through the production and exportExpand

Active mud volcanoes on- and offshore eastern Makran, Pakistan
To study the activity, source and driving force of the venting of fluidized mud in the coastal Makran, we carried out reconnaissance surveys of two active onshore mud volcano fields (Chandragup andExpand

Coccolithophore fluxes in the Norwegian-Greenland Sea: Seasonality and assemblage alterations
Abstract Coccolithophore fluxes were investigated by sediment trap studies at two well separated oceanographic sites in the Norwegian and Greenland seas from 1990 to 1992. Each trap mooring comprisedExpand

Coccolithophore fluxes from sediment traps in the northeastern Arabian Sea off Pakistan
Abstract We investigated coccolithophore fluxes from four sediment traps located in the northeastern Arabian Sea at the continental slope of Pakistan. Two moorings, WPT and EPT (Western/isasternExpand

Plankton in the Norwegian-Greenland Sea: from living communities to sediment assemblages —an actualistic approach
A synoptic study is carried out to reconstruct the development of the plankton community in the late Quaternary in the Norwegian-Greenland Sea. It comprises quantitative analyses of coccolithophores,Expand
