Cretaceous Planktonic Foraminifers and Depositional Environments from the Ontong Java Plateau with Emphasis on Sites

Abstract

Cretaceous planktonic foraminifers from Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Leg 130 consist of two age groups: one dominantly Aptian in age and the other dominantly Maastrichtian. The oldest dated sediments from Ontong Java Plateau occur at ODP Site 807 and are assigned to the early Aptian Globigerinelloides blowi Zone. The assemblage correlates closely with… (More)
