Spatial and Temporal Distributions of Live Salt-Marsh Foraminifera in Southern New Jersey: Implications for Sea-Level Studies
A new paper has been published by PALSEA working group members.
In their article published in Journal of Foraminiferal Research, Walker JS et al. evaluated small-scale Geological spatial and temporal (seasonal and interannual) variability of live foraminifera assemblages from four high marsh monitoring stations along a salinity gradient in southern New Jersey over three years.
The authors maintain that "A detailed understanding of how live foraminifera assemblages compare to dead or total (live + dead) assemblages and the influence of environmental variables on foraminiferal distributions is essential for their use as a proxy to reconstruct sea level."
They find that the value of salt-marsh foraminifera are reliable sea-level indicators.
