Figure F27. Paleodepth interpretation based on the composition of benthic foraminiferal assemblages, Site U1352. The presence of rare but persistent bathyal marker species, especially in the upper part of the section, suggests that shelfal taxa composing the bulk of the benthic assemblage were transported downslope. In this context, the actual paleowater depths are closer to the deep end of the depth limits shown.
