Abstract

Planktonic foraminiferal biostratigraphy, biochronology, and biogeography in the Atlantic Ocean serves as a basis for reconstruction of Atlantic Ocean circulation during the Cenozoic. It is shown that changing paleogeography and paleoclimatology control changes in paleocirculation and paleobiogeography. Among the significant paleogeographic-paleoclimatic events discussed are the separation of Australia from Antarctica in the Eocene, major global cooling, the extension of antarctic glaciation to sea level, and the production of sea ice and Antarctic Bottom Water at or near the time of the Eocene/Oligocene boundary, and the development of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet during the Late Miocene.
