Larger agglutinated foraminifera from the Faeroe Channel and Rockall Trough collected by W. B. Carpenter
Abstract. The Carpenter collection contains numerous slides of larger agglutinated foraminifera from the Faeroe Channel area. These have been re-identified during the preparation of a catalogue. The Faeroe Channel has a cold bottom water mass to the north (temperature ∼ 0°C) overlying sandy sediment with few larger agglutinated foraminifera, and a somewhat warmer water mass to the south (temperature > 2°C) overlying carbonate ooze with a diverse fauna of larger agglutinated foraminifera.
