Middle to late Quaternary sediment fluxes in the Labrador Sea, ODP Leg 105, Site 646: a synthesis of rock-magnetic, oxygen-isotopic, carbonate, and planktonic foraminiferal data

Document Type


Date of Original Version



Examines rock-magnetic, carbonate, and planktonic foraminiferal fluxes to identify climatically controlled changes of terrigenous and pelagic sedimentation at Site 646 (the Labrador Sea). Terrigenous sediments are brought to the site principally by bottom currents. The shift observed in the lag times of parameters examined with respect to the SPECMAP record is attributed to a change in significance of orbital parameters. -from Authors
