Summary
Abstract: Instituto Antartico Argentino Antarctic Data Base describes about
3,000 samples of Mesozoic-Cenozoic diatoms obtained from sedimentary
cores. Most of the diatoms indicate Holocene-Late Pleistocene fresh
water, brackish and shallow marine environments. The samples are from
sedimentary cores obtained in lakes located in the South Shetland
Islands and Patagonia (southernmost South America). Late
Mesozoic-Early Cenozoic marine diatoms were sampled from piston cores
obtained in the Scotia Sea and northern Weddell Sea.
