Glacial-interglacial changes in nutrient utilization and paleoproductivity in the Indonesian Throughflow sensitive Timour Trough, easternmost Indian Ocean
Paleoproductivity in the Timor Trough appears to be inversely proportional to the strength of the Indonesian Throughflow. Today, productivity in the area is inhibited by the narrow band of low-salinity surface water that moves through the Indonesian Archipelago and spreads out over the equatorial portions of the eastern Indian Ocean. During the Last Glacial Maximum, however, the reduction or absence of this low-salinity "cap" would have enhanced the possibility of upwelling and higher...[Show more]
