... and West Norwegian fjords shows a strong affinity to the neritic province and reaches almost 2% in Hryangerfjord. This species is only known from late Glacial and Holocene sediments in the Nordic seas. This genus shows, however, a patchy stratigraphic distribution with its first occurrence in the south...

Abstract Analyses samples of turbidites from the Gulf of Alaska, Arctic Ocean, Norwegian fjords and elsewhere and presents plots of quartile deviations and medians from grain-size distributions. These are compared with similar analyses of ancient turbidites. Implications...

... of the dominating living and dead benthic species. The Bulimina marginata–Cassidulina reniforme assemblage is found in the inner fjord basin, where it is correlated with relatively cold (6–6.9°C) and slightly less saline water masses (34–34.75‰) compared to the Norwegian Atlantic Water masses. The Brizalina...

... carried north in the Norwegian Atlantic Current and the West Spitsbergen Current ( Cottier et al. 2005 ; Skogseth et al. 2005 a ; Nilsen et al. 2008 ). The Atlantic Water has probably mixed to some extent with shelf waters before entering the fjord and is therefore rather cooler and fresher than...

... to 50% reworked sediments ( Holtedahl 1975 ). In Norwegian fjords this can result from crustal unloading as the ice retreated, reactivating basement faults leading to an increase in seismic activity. Recent human activity, notably land use, can also play a significant role in influencing fjord...
