The late Eocene through Oligocene changes in the paleoceanography of the southernmost Indian Ocean have been reconstructed by means of a coarse fraction analysis of closely spaced samples (20 cm = about 20 kyr) from ODP Site 744, Kerguelen Plateau. Surface water productivity, reconstructed from accumulation rates of opal skeletons and benthic foraminifers is low in the early late Eocene, increases at about 36 Ma and shows a sharp increase to maximum values in the earliest Oligocene. In the… CONTINUE READING
