Equal volume surface sediment samples from the eastern delta margin were studied for Foraminifera. Six faunal assemblages, based on living specimens are defined: (1) marsh, (2) interdistributary bay, (3) fluvial marine, (4) deltaic marine, (5) sound, and (6) open shelf. Bottom-water masses, characterized by limits of variability of the chemical and physical properties, coincide with the faunal distribution. No single property of the bottom water appears to be the controlling ecological factor… CONTINUE READING
