The spatial and temporal distribution of biogenic and lithogenic sediments in the late Quaternary Southern Ocean reflects the zonal character of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current and is basically controlled by glacial dynamics in Antarctica, sea-ice distribution, temperature gradients, wind patterns, and thermohaline ocean circulation. Carbonate patterns in most places reveal a decline in biogenic carbonate preservation during glacial periods, mainly attributed to a reduced influx of North… CONTINUE READING
