Summary
Abstract: Well-preserved nannofossil and stable isotope records from the mid-Cretaceous
of ODP Leg 171B (western North Atlantic) indicate cyclical, productivity-based
variations in surface water characteristics, suggesting orbitally paced changes
in upwelling intensity and the strength of deep mixing associated with Oceanic
Anoxic Event (OAE) 1d. Paleontologic and isotopic evidence suggest that
collapse ... View entire text
