This research used samples and/or data provided by the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) collected during IODP Expedition 306. Funding for this research was provided Joint Oceanographic Institutions/US Science Support Program Grant Number JSA13 (T306A13). I am grateful to all Expedition 306 scientists, Anna Stepanova for assistance in ostracode identification and taxonomy, Katerina Petronotis for generating the North Atlantic bathymetric map illustration using GMT, and Tom Stephens and Mike Pendleton from the Microscopy and Imaging Center at Texas A&M University for assistance. The FE-SEM acquisition of the center was supported by National Science Foundation Grant DBI-0116835, the Vice President for Research Office and the Texas Engineering Experiment Station.
