Abstract A study of the Quaternary history of calcium carbonate fluctuations in the equatorial Indian Ocean, based on the Swedish Deep-Sea Expedition Core 154 demonstrates that the Calcite Compensation Depth (CCD) was shallower during interglacial periods than during glacials. Higher percentages of calcium carbonate, lower percentages of dissolution-resistant planktonic foraminifera and lower values of the Berger dissolution index, suggesting better calcium carbonate preservation, are recorded… CONTINUE READING
