A limited amount of studies of benthic foraminifera in surface sediments in the Arctic Ocean and adjoining seas have been carried out the last forty years: Lagoe, Schro¨der-Adams et al., Scott and Vilks, Bergsten, Hald and Steinsund, Ishman and Foley, Wollenburg and Mackensen, Osterman et al., Wollenburg and Kuhnt, Scott et al. and Saher et al.

The first Arctic geographic distribution map of G. uvula is presented. The most precise transfer function estimates are from m water depth.

In a one-stop resource, this book provides a state-of-the-art overview of all aspects of pure and applied foram studies. Buildingfrom introductorychaptersonthe historyof foraminiferalresearch, and research methods, the book then takes the reader through biology, ecology, palaeoecology, biostratigraphy and sequence stratigraphy. Attached epilithic foraminifera constitute an important but overlooked component of the benthic foraminiferal assemblage in the Pleistocene sediment of the central Arctic Ocean. We report 12 types of epilithic foraminifera that have colonised lithic and biogenic grains found in glacial sediments, including representatives of the genera Rhizammina, Hemisphaerammina, Ammopemphix, Diffusilina. The section on case studies of applications in reservoir exploitation includes case studies from the marginal to shallow marine, peri-deltaic clastic reservoirs in the Gullfaks, Snorre and Statfjord fields in the Norwegian sector, and in the Ninian and Thistle fields in the UK sector, in the North Sea; the marginal to shallow marine, peri.

  The book also combines lavish illustrations, including over 70 stunning original picture-diagrams of foraminifera, with comprehensive references for further reading. Accessible and practical, this is a vital resource for graduate students, academic micropalaeontologists, and professionals across all disciplines and industry settings which make Reviews: 5. Foraminifera from the Kara and Greenland Seas, and Review of Arctic Studies By RUTH TODD and DORIS Low GEOLOGICAL SURVEY PROFESSIONAL PAPER Sparse and erratic fauna ( species) of low diversity and strong dominances from the Continental Shelf of both seas and from slopes, basins, and rises of the Greenland Sea. About this book An up-to-date atlas of an important fossil and living group, with the Natural History Museum. Deep-sea benthic foraminifera have played a central role in biostratigraphic, paleoecological, and paleoceanographical research for over a century. Foraminifera are eukaryotic unicellular microorganisms inhabiting all marine environments. The study of these protists has huge potential implications and benefits. They are good indicators of global change and are also promising indicators of the environmental health of marine ecosystems. Nevertheless, much remains to be learned about foraminiferal ecology.
