Google ScholarCited by: Hundreds of known benthic foraminifer species live in coastal marine environments. Most of them are rare. The dominant species are widely distributed, many across major biogeographic barriers. Micropaleontological studies were made of cores from four shelf basins on the eastern Canadian Margin: Emerald and Canso basins on the Scotian Shelf (44°–46° N), Notre Dame Channel, Newfoundland Shelf (50° N) and Cartwright Saddle, Labrador Shelf (55°). Events were correlated using a combination of 14 C dates and pollen stratigraphies.

Oceanography The continental shelf water off eastern Canada is carried in a southerly direction by two major current systems: the Labrador Current that flows over the Labrador Shelf and Grand Banks, and the Nova Scotia Cur- rent that flows over the inner Scotian Shelf (Fig. 2). ABSTRACT. Thirty-four bottom sediments samples from Jizan shelf have been analysed for benthic foraminifera where hyaline, porcelaneous and agglutinated foraminifera have been recorded. In contrast with the north-eastern parts of the Red Sea, hyaline foraminifera dominate over por-celaneous foraminifera in about 68% of the samples. L. King (GSC II) renews the inspiring discussion initiated by Drake et al. () which compares modern passive margins with ancient geosynclines. The comparison still remains very attractive despite the fact that classical geosynclinal nomenclature appears to become more and more untenable in the light of geophysical and subsurface mapping of presently preserved basins. This ought to.

  Agglutinated foraminifera (Fig. 2C) occur on the continental shelf in percentages not higher than 18%. On the upper slope the percentage of agglutinated taxa is very low (1–3%) except for the sample at m water depth in which the agglutinated taxa compose the 17% of the association.
