1. Sea-level fluctuations during the last glacial cycle.

    Nature 423(6942):853 (2003) PMID 12815427

    The last glacial cycle was characterized by substantial millennial-scale climate fluctuations, but the extent of any associated changes in global sea level (or, equivalently, ice volume) remains elusive. Highstands of sea level can be reconstructed from dated fossil coral reef terraces, and thes...
  2. Black Sea impact on the formation of eastern Mediterranean sapropel S1? Evidence from the Marmara Sea

    Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology 190:9 (2003)

    Water exchange between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea has been a major focus of the paleohydrography of the eastern Mediterranean. Glacial melt water released from the Black Sea is a potential factor in the formation of sapropel S1, an organic-rich sediment layer that accumulated d...
  3. Regional and seasonal variations of recent benthic deep-sea foraminifera in the Arabian Sea

    Deep Sea Research Part I: Oceanographic Researc... 50(3):435 (2003)

    Assemblages of living deep-sea benthic foraminifera, their densities, vertical distribution pattern, and diversity, were investigated in the intermonsoon period after the northeast monsoon in the Arabian Sea in spring 1997. Foraminiferal numbers show a distinct gradient from north to south,...
  4. Time-response of cultured deep-sea benthic foraminifera to different algal diets

    Deep Sea Research Part I: Oceanographic Researc... 49(3):517 (2002)

    The vertical distribution of benthic foraminifera in the surface sediment is influenced by environmental factors, mainly by food and oxygen supply. An experiment of three different time series was performed to investigate the response of deep-sea benthic foraminifera to simulated phytodetri...
  5. Distribution, biomass and diversity of benthic foraminifera in relation to sediment geochemistry in the Arabian Sea

    Deep Sea Research Part II: Topical Studies in O... 47(14):2913 (2000)

    The distribution, biomass, and diversity of living (Rose Bengal stained) deep-sea benthic foraminifera (>30 μm) were investigated with multicorer samples from seven stations in the Arabian Sea during the intermonsoonal periods in March and in September/October, 1995. Water depths of t...
