Preliminary palynological results on the Pleistocene-Holocene transition, Seram Trench, offshore Irian Jaya, Indonesia

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

These first palynological results are part of a multidisciplinary high-resolution research effort on the Pleistocene-Holocene transition, as recorded in a Snellius-II marine piston core from the Seram Trench, some 60 km offshore Irian Jaya. The timeframe is provided by stable oxygen isotope stratigraphy. Measurements were performed on the planktonic foraminifer Globigerinoides ruber. The proximity of the core site to Irian Jaya is expected to ensure that the pollen record largely reflects vegetational developments of that island. -from Author
