Neogene history of the calcite compensation depth and lysocline in the South Pacific Ocean


The depth–time pattern of calcite accumulation recorded at Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) sites beneath the oligotrophic subtropical gyre in the south-east Pacific Ocean allows us to define here both the calcite compensation depth (CCD) and the lysocline. The Neogene CCD history is one of shoaling before 15 or 20 Myr and subsequent deepening to the… (More)
