Average process length variation of the marine dinoflagellate cyst Operculodinium centrocarpum in the tropical and Southern Hemisphere Oceans: Assessing its potential as a palaeosalinity proxy
The study investigates the morphological variability of the dinoflagellate cyst Operculodinium centrocarpum (resting cyst of Protoceratium reticulatum) in core-top samples distributed over the Southern Hemisphere and the tropics in relation to sea-surface temperature (SST) and sea-surface salinity (SSS) at the corresponding sites. The process lengths show a moderate inverse relationship to summer SST (sSST) (R 2=0.44) and sSSS/sSST (R 2=0.4), however, lateral transport of cysts probably...[Show more]
