A Reassessment of the Southern Ocean Biochronology (Geological Society Memoir 18)1862390274, 9781862390270

Author : Anthony T. S. Ramsay, J. G. Baldauf
Description:The integrated approach applied in the study provides a reassessment of the stratigraphy previously established for the 18 holes that have been re-examined. The authors set out the current understanding of Southern Ocean biochronology and give a synthesis of biostratigraphical and polarity data from previous work. The volume will be a valuable reference for interpreting the palaeoceanography, climatic history and tectonic evolution of the Southern Ocean. It also provides a framework for dating oceanography and sedimentary events that are used as proxies for interpreting the glacial history of Antarctica.
