Seasonal change in foraminiferal production in the western equatorial Pacific: evidence from sediment trap experiments.

Kawahata, Hodaka; Nishimura, Akira; Gagan, Michael

Description

Seasonal changes in the flux of individual planktonic foraminifera in the deep ocean have been studied in the western equatorial Pacific warm pool using material collected by sediment traps over a period of 1 yr (1991-1992). Mean total foraminiferal fluxes (TFFs) were 171 and 97 shells m-2 day-1 at Sites N1 (2°59.8′N, 135°01.5′E) and N2 (4°07.5′N, 136°16.6′E), respectively. The seasonal change in TFFs was much higher than for organic matter (OM) and carbonate fluxes. The major species of...[Show more]
