Analysis of the spatial distribution of the dinoflagellate cyst assemblages in 19 surface sediment samples collected from 3 Buzzards Bay (Massachusetts, USA) embayments revealed the potential applicability of dinoflagellate cysts as biological indicators of environmental conditions in estuarine systems. Sites with the highest levels of toxic pollution and hypertrophic conditions are characterized by the lowest dinoflagellate cyst species-richness and concentrations. Among the abi- otic factors… 
Distribution of dinoflagellate cysts in Yellow Sea sediments
TLDR
It is suggested that anthropogenic activities such as ocean dumping stimulate the growth of dinoflagellates in the Yellow Sea, which in turn leads to high levels of din oflageLLate cyst production.
Modern Dinoflagellate Cyst Assemblages of Aliağa and Nemrut Bay: Influence of Industrial Pollution
TLDR
The distribution of dinoflagellate cysts also showed correlation with sediment structure in Aliağa and Nemrut Bay, and total number of cysts had no correlation with any metal levels in the sediment except Cr.

Dinoflagellate Cysts as Indicators of Cultural Eutrophication in the Oslofjord, Norway
Dinoflagellate cyst records were analysed from four sediment cores from the inner Oslofjord. The cores covered the pre-industrial period, and the most important period of human population growth
Distribution of recent dinoflagellate cysts in surface sediments from the North Atlantic Ocean and adjacent seas in relation to sea-surface parameters
TLDR
Validation procedures on this transfer function demonstrate that more than 95% of the reconstructions are included within the interannual variability of modern sea-surface conditions, and can be applied to reconstructing paleotemperatures and salinities from analogous assemblages in Quaternary sedimentary sequences.
Dinoflagellate cysts as indicators of pollution and past climate in a Norwegian fjord
Two sediment cores from a semi enclosed eutrophic fjord and one from the open adjoining fjord revealed a sequence of dinoflagellate cyst assemblage changes during the past 1000 years. Higher
