An Arctic ostracod fauna from the Pre-Ludhamian (late Pliocene to early Pleistocene) Red Crag Formation at Buckanay Farm, Suffolk, England

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Ostracods are microscopic crustaceans that occur throughout the Pliocene and Pleistocene Crags of East Anglia, England. Building upon the preliminary work of the author, this research provides the first quantitative, species-level reconstruction of palaeotemperatures and bathymetries of the Red Crag Formation during the Pre-Ludhamian Stage; a period that includes the first major episodes of Northern Hemisphere Glaciation. By calculating the degree of similarity between recent and Red Crag assemblages, using a quantitative method of species analogues and similarity coefficients, it has been possible to reconstruct environmental conditions in the southern North Sea during the late Pliocene - early Pleistocene.
