Abstract

A comparison of Campanian-Maestrichtian cores from two localities on opposite sides of the Maurice Ewing Bank, at the eastern end of the east-west trending Falkland Plateau (Southwest Atlantic) reveals a significant change in faunal and floral assemblage characteristics across the Plateau. These changes are probably temperature dependent, and indicate that the Plateau served as an important barrier between water masses in the South Atlantic during late Cretaceous times. ?? 1977.
