Significance of correspondence between river discharge and proloculus size of benthic foraminifera in paleomonsoonal studies
Variations in the mean proloculus size (MPS) of the benthic foraminiferal species Rotalidium annectens were studied in a core collected off Karwar (20 m water depth), on the west coast of India. Comparison of downcore ...
Proloculus size variation in Recent benthic foraminifera: Implications for paleoclimatic studies
Ratios of dimorphic (microspheric/megalospheric) forms of Foraminifera are affected by temperature and hence are useful in paleoclimatic studies. In some cases, however, it is not possible to distinguish between the dimorphic ...
