About this book

The heat and mass exchanges between the Antarctic Ocean and the South Atlantic during the Late Quaternary have been investigated over the past ten years, including their impact on world climate. The interdisciplinary research project "The South Atlantic in the Late Quaternary - Reconstruction of material budgets and current systems" was a long-term scientific program at Bremen University. This book presents the summarized results of the various topics of study in 30 articles arranged in seven sections.


Particle Flux in the South Atlantic.- Documentation of the Marine Environment in Microfossil Assemblages and Stable Isotopes.- Physical Sedimentary Records of Palaeoenvironmental and Depositional Conditions.- Source and Transport Signatures of the Terrigenous Sediment Fraction.- Early Diagenetic Processes and Preservation of Primary Signals.- History of Upper Ocean Circulation.- History of Bottom and Deep Water Circulation.
