Study of the main features of sedimentation in the Labrador Sea during the Late Quaternary
The authors analyzed the marine sediment core AMK-4474 recovered from the Northwest Atlantic Mid-Ocean Channel levee. Micropaleontological and grain size analyses were applied to study the main features of sedimentation process in this region during the Late Quaternary. It was shown ...
Glaciodislocations in the quaternary deposits of the Kaliningrad region
... mechanisms. Meanwhile, some of the dislocations, such as the glacial blocks, may be of interest as amber deposits. The aim of the work is to characterize and systematize the unique glaciotectonic formations observed in the surface, mainly Quaternary, sediments of the Kaliningrad Peninsula. Based on the classification proposed by E. A. Levkov (1980), some glacio-dislocations have been systematized. Formations of active ice — folded-scaly dislocations, glaciodiapirs and glacial blocks, and “dead” ...
On the benthic foraminifera species of Alabaminella weddellensis and Epistominella exigua in paleo-oceanologic reconstructions
The article examines the ecology of benthic foraminifera species of Alabaminella weddellensis and Epistominella exigua based on published works. Micropaleontological and statistical data of three long sediment cores taken from the southwestern part of the South Atlantic and one core obtained in the northwestern Pacific were used to study the characteristic of the species distribution in the sediments during last 300 thousand years. These areas belong ...
