...Brent Wilson; Ashleigh Costelloe Abstract Deep Sea Drilling Project Hole 148 was drilled on the Aves Ridge, eastern Caribbean Sea at a lower-bathyal depth (1232 m) beneath the eastern edge of the Orinoco plume. The drillhole penetrated ~124 m of Pleistocene sediment, but core recovery was poor (66...

... from the ∼124-m-thick Pleistocene strata of DSDP Hole 148 (eastern Caribbean Sea). SHEBI indicated 18 ABs; of the 17 AB boundaries, seven were Type –1β, two were Type 0β, and eight, Type +1β. The direction of inflection of the graph of lnE versus lnN did not indicate AB boundary type. Although...

A reduction in standing stocks was observed close to the Orinoco River plume and in the Gulf of Paria, associated with high turbidity and concomitant low surface-water salinity. In contrast, a transient mesoscale patch of high chlorophyll concentration in the eastern Caribbean Sea...
