Abstract International Ocean Discovery Program Sites U1437 and U1436, two intermediate water depth sites located near the Kuroshio Current were studied for planktonic proxies, shell weights, percent fragments, foraminifers concentrations, and benthic/planktonic ratios. Over the last 1 My, the foraminifers assemblages responded to local temperature changes. The taphonomy of these assemblages limits their usefulness as palaeoclimatic records but greatly inform qualitatively of intermediate water… 

Enhanced Carbonate Dissolution Associated With Deglacial Dysoxic Events in the Subpolar North Pacific

Here we use volume density (ρV) measurements as a metric of size‐normalized weights for Neogloboquadrina pachyderma, a planktonic foraminifer, from upper OMZ and abyssal depth sites in the Gulf of

The role of dispersed ash in orbital-scale time-series studies of explosive arc volcanism: insights from IODP Hole U1437B, Northwest Pacific Ocean

ABSTRACT Tephra fallout beds in marine sediments provide chronologically precise and highly resolved records of volcanism at time scales relevant to Quaternary climate cycles. While the record of

Across‐Arc Diversity in Rhyolites From an Intra‐oceanic Arc: Evidence From IODP Site U1437, Izu‐Bonin Rear Arc, and Surrounding Area

Felsic magmas from the Izu‐Bonin rear arc have compositions that resemble average continental crust in some respects. In order to understand their origin, we studied 1.1–4.4 Ma tephras in a rear‐arc

Progressive and Punctuated Magnetic Mineral Diagenesis: The Rock Magnetic Record of Multiple Fluid Inputs and Progressive Pyritization in a Volcano‐Bounded Basin, IODP Site U1437, Izu Rear Arc

International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Site U1437 recovered an 1,800‐m‐long sediment sequence in a volcano‐bounded basin on the Izu rear arc. Pore fluid studies revealed a pattern of repeated

Spectral Moments in Cyclostratigraphy: Advantages and Disadvantages Compared to More Classic Approaches

Cyclostratigraphic analyses rely on techniques that trace astronomical components in paleoclimate signals. These techniques have demonstrated their value but rely on certain assumptions on the



Data report: Pleistocene planktonic foraminiferal oxygen and carbon stable isotope records and their use to improve the age model of Hole U1436C cores recovered east of the Aogashima Volcano

International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Expedition 350 cored Site U1436 at intermediate water depth (1776 meters below sea level) in the western part of the Izu fore-arc basin, ~60 km east of

The intensification of northern component deepwater formation during the mid‐Pleistocene climate transition

We reconstruct mid-Pleistocene (marine isotope stages (MISs) 13–18) deepwater hydrography at Ocean Drilling Program Site 1063 (4583 m water depth, subtropical North Atlantic) using benthic

Onset of “Hudson Strait” Heinrich events in the eastern North Atlantic at the end of the middle Pleistocene transition (∼640 ka)?

[1] Heinrich events are well documented for the last glaciation, but little is known about their occurrence in older glacial periods of the Pleistocene. Here we report scanning XRF and bulk carbonate

Carbonate Dissolution Fluctuations in the Western Equatorial Pacific During the Late Quaternary

Planktonic foraminiferal test fragmentation in three cores along a depth transect from the western equatorial Pacific (ERDC-93P, 1619 m; RC17-177, 2600 m; V28-238, 3120 m [Thompson, 1976]) were

Gulf Stream variability during marine isotope stage 3

We have studied Ocean Drilling Program Site 1060 on the Blake Outer Ridge, which lies beneath the Gulf Stream. We focus on marine isotope stage 3, 60–25 thousand years before present (ka). Sea

Carbon dioxide release from the North Pacific abyss during the last deglaciation

Sedimentary geochemical records from sites spanning the deep subarctic Pacific are presented to show that a poorly ventilated water mass containing a high concentration of respired carbon dioxide occupied the North Pacific abyss during the Last Glacial Maximum, qualitatively consistent with hypotheses invoking a deglacial flushing of respiring carbon dioxide from an isolated, deep ocean reservoir.

Climatic change and CaCO3 preservation: An 800,000 year bathymetric Reconstruction from the central equatorial Pacific Ocean

Sixteen deep-sea cores from the central equatorial Pacific are used to reconstruct a continuous 800,000-year (800-kyr) record of bathymetric variations in carbonate preservation as measured by

Late Quaternary CaCO3 production and preservation in the Southern Ocean: Implications for oceanic and atmospheric carbon cycling

Recent geochemical models invoke ocean alkalinity changes, particularly in the surface Southern Ocean, to explain glacial age pCO2 reduction. In such models, alkalinity increases in glacial periods
