The Mesozoic–Cenozoic History of the Arctic Ocean References Index viii Contents Description Although it is generally accepted that the Arctic Ocean is a very sensitive and important region for changes in the global climate, this region is the last major physiographic province of the earth whose short-and long-term geological history is much less known in comparison to other ocean regions. Arctic Ocean Sediments: Processes, Proxies, and Paleoenvironment (ISSN series) by R. Stein. Although it is generally accepted that the Arctic Ocean is a very sensitive and important region for changes in the global climate, this region is the last major physiographic province of the earth whose short-and long-term geological history is much less known in comparison to other ocean regions.

Stratigraphy and glacial-marine sediments of the Amerasian Basin, central Arctic Ocean. Thirteen correlatable lithostratigraphic units are recognized in cores recovered from the central Arctic Ocean. The stratigraphic units range in age from late Miocene to Holocene and can be correlated over several hundred thousand square kilometres.

Pages Arctic Ocean Sediments, Microfauna, and the Climatic Record in Late Cenozoic Time. Yvonne Herman. Four sediment cores collected from the shelf to slope in the Arctic Ocean showed differences in contents of TOC and BC. Higher TOC was associated with small grain sizes in the Chukchi Sea sediments and decreased offshore in the slope sediments of the Arctic : Peng Ren, Yanguang Liu, Xuefa Shi, Shuwen Sun, Di Fan, Xuchen Wang. In the central Arctic Ocean sediments are concentrated in layers within or at the surface of ice floes due to melting and refreezing processes. The surface sediment accumulation in central Arctic multi-year sea ice exceeds by far the amounts observed in first-year ice from the Laptev Sea in April

Sediment waves and other evidence of strong paleo-bottom current activity were observed in the deep Arctic Ocean during the through drift of Fletcher's Ice Island (T-3). Arctic Ocean sediments: processes, proxies, and paleoenvironment. [Ruediger Stein] -- Written by a leading scholar and industry expert, R. Stein, this book presents background research, recent developments and future trends. The perennial Arctic Ocean ice-cover consists of sea ice and glacial ice. Sea ice is most common today but at times during the Late Cenozoic, glacial ice has been extremely abundant. Both sea ice and glacial ice can transport a significant sediment load. The mode of incorporation of sediment into the two ice types is quite by: Arctic Ocean Sediments Processes, Proxies, and Paleoenvironment by R.
