- adj. Alternative spelling of palaeoceanographic.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
This study is aimed at unraveling paleoceanographic changes associated with the late Paleocene thermal maximum.
Further evaluation of long-chain alkenones as indicators of paleoceanographic conditions.
According to the researcher, "for the carrying out of this work we applied different techniques of geochemical analysis, mineralogy and isotopic analysis of organic matter for the reconstruction of the paleoceanographic conditions which induced to the accumulation of organic matter in marine sediments (sapropels), its implications in the carbon cycle and, consequently, in the climatic variation in the Mediterranean area and in the African craton, the main source of nutrients of these sediments".
Both the persistent formation of warm, saline intermediate waters and enhanced mixing contradict leading paleoceanographic models for these times.
