Oman, Arabian Sea Upwelling Data Set
Entry ID: NOAA_NCDC_PALEO_95-033

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Planktonic foraminifer assemblages and fluxes from sediments recovered by ODP
leg 117 on the Oman margin are used to reconstruct northwest Arabian Sea
upwelling and the southwest monsoon. Variations in G. Bulloides and in total
foraminifer counts show cycles of variability at 23kyr and 100kyr.
