Paleoceanography of Upper Maestrichtian to Eocene Benthic Foraminiferal Assemblages at Sites 752 , 753 , and 754 , Eastern Indian Ocean

  title={Paleoceanography of Upper Maestrichtian to Eocene Benthic Foraminiferal Assemblages at Sites 752 , 753 , and 754 , Eastern Indian Ocean},
  author={Ritsuo Nomura},
Late Maestrichtian to late Eocene bathyal benthic foraminiferal faunas at Sites 752,753, and 754 on Broken Ridge in the eastern Indian Ocean were analyzed as to their stratigraphic distribution of species to clarify the relation between faunal turnovers and paleoceanographic changes. Based on Q-mode factor analysis, eight varimax assemblages were distinguished: the Stensioina beccariiformis assemblage in the upper Maestrichtian to upper Paleocene; the Cibicidoides hyphalus assemblage in the… CONTINUE READING
