The main objective of DSDP Leg 94 was to study North Atlantic late Neogene environments. The six drill sites underlie a range of present-day environments from subtropical to subpolar, and all except one are characterized by high sedimentation rates and minimal reworking. Coring by Hydraulic Piston Corer, Advanced Piston Corer, and Extended Core Barrel ensured a complete record back to at least 2.4 Ma at all sites, but core recovery beyond this level was also excellent. Good core recovery and… 
Planktonic foraminifer biostratigraphy and paleoenvironmental implications of leg 152 sites (east Greenland margin)
Five sites and eight holes drilled on the East Greenland Margin during Ocean Drilling Program Leg 152 recovered Quaternary to middle Eocene sediments. Planktonic foraminiferal assemblages display
34. PLANKTONIC FORAMINIFER BIOSTRATIGRAPHY OF NORWEGIAN SEA SEDIMENTS: ODP LEG 104 1
Sites 642, 643, and 644 were investigated for planktonic foraminifers. Frequent occurrences of barren intervals caused by dissolution as well as low- diversity and long-ranging assemblages reduce the
18. NEOGENE AND QUATERNARY PLANKTONIC FORAMINIFER BIOSTRATIGRAPHY AND BIOCHRONOLOGY IN BAFFIN BAY AND THE LABRADOR SEA 1
During Ocean Drilling Program Leg 105, 11 holes were drilled in the Labrador Sea and Baffin Bay. Site 645 in Baf­ fin Bay was drilled to a depth of 1147 meters below seafloor (mbsf); planktonic
Late Pliocene and Pleistocene biostratigraphy of the Nordic Atlantic region
The lack of primary and secondary GSSP correlative markers in Plio-Pleistocene deposits of the North Sea, Nordic seas and northern North Atlantic creates a challenge for the biostratigrapher. This

Abstract Radiolaria were examined throughout the Plio-Pleistocene of Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) Site 609. Eight radiolarian datum-levels (first and last appearances) were identified, some for

During Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Leg 162, five sites were drilled in the subpolar North Atlantic (Sites 980–984), three sites in the Nordic Seas (Sites 985–987), and two holes at Iceland Sea Site
10. NEOGENE AND QUATERNARY PLANKTONIC FORAMINIFERAL BIOSTRATIGRAPHY OF THE CANARY ISLAND REGION 1
We examined planktonic foraminifers from Sites 953 and 954 in the Canary Island region. Site 953 is stratigraphically the best site with a complete Quaternary to middle Miocene sequence of pelagic
NEOGENE AND QUATERNARY PLANKTONIC FORAMINIFERAL BIOSTRATIGRAPHY OF THE CANARY ISLAND REGION
We examined planktonic foraminifers from Sites 953 and 954 in the Canary Island region. Site 953 is stratigraphically the best site with a complete Quaternary to middle Miocene sequence of pelagic
Integrated stratigraphy (cyclostratigraphy and biochronology) of late Middle Miocene deposits in the Mediterranean area and comparison with the North and Equatorial Atlantic Oceans: synthesis of the major results
The stratigraphic correlation of North and Equatorial Atlantic Ocean records with Mediterranean astronomically tuned sections reveals the diachrony of several planktonic foraminiferal bioevents, but
Upper Cainozoic stratigraphy in the central North Sea (Ekofisk and Sleipner fields)
The investigation is based on analyses of planktonic and benthonic forarninifera and Bo/bof orma carried out in the uppermost Palaeogene and Neogene of the production well 2/4-C-11 (56°33' N, 3°13'

Quaternary to Pliocene planktonic foraminifers of the Goban Spur, off the Irish coast, were investigated for their biostratigraphic and environmental significance. Three biostratigraphic zones were
Oxygen isotope calibration of the onset of ice-rafting and history of glaciation in the North Atlantic region
We report here that DSDP Site 552A, cored with the hydraulic piston corer on the west flank of Rockall Bank, recovered an undisturbed sequence of alternating white deep-sea carbonate oozes and

Markedly increased application of the floating planktonic foraminifers by petroleum-company micropaleontologists and biostratigraphers now clearly demonstrates the widespread utility of these forms
Foraminiferal Ooze: Solution at Depths
TLDR
Samples of foraminiferal ooze were exposed to ocean water at various depths for 4 months, attached to the taut wire of a buoy in the central Pacific, finding that solution is selective; it changes species composition, size distribution, content of damaged shells, and average particle weight of an assemblage.
