Abstract

To improve our understanding of the Late Pleistocene and Holocene carbonate system of the western Arabian Sea a high-resolution sedimentary record off Somalia has been analysed. The 15.26-m-long piston core 905 comprises a complete record of the last 90,000 years. We have measured concentrations of carbonate minerals, i.e., aragonite, calcite, Mg-calcite, and element ratios (Sr/Ca) together with pteropod counts and an estimation of the preservation state of pteropod shells to trace temporal changes in carbonate production and preservation. The Sr/Ca ratio shows strong similarities to the aragonite percentage and the δ
