AAR analysis of solitary foraminifer may be used to figure out general age and correlate landscape features.
Robust, reworked foraminifera tests can help in understanding spatio-temporal habits of redeposition and erosion.
Formerly cibicides that are unanalyzed and Rosalina bradyi tests are been shown to be beneficial in geochronological applications.
The recognition and correlation of a series of Pleistocene coastline barriers positioned inside the north Coorong Coastal Plain, Southern Australia, is created hard by long-lasting subsidence and reworking that is extensive. Associated shell beds, to all or any however the final barrier that is interglacial are subsurface rather than easily available. The whole-rock amino acid racemization technique had been discovered to be unsuitable for differentiating age distinctions of this specific obstacles as a result of the calcium that is low content associated with sediments, issues for the leaching or contamination as a consequence of the comminuted nature associated with shelly component, plus the possibly high content of reworked sediment. These problems prompted a study in to the applicability of AAR analysis of solitary foraminifera tests to determine whether or not the general chronilogical age of coastline obstacles could possibly be determined and whether sediment contribution from antecedent barriers might be identified. Foraminifera tests of numerous genera (including Cibicides corticatus and Rosalina bradyi) from many contemporary depositional environments had been analyzed to determine aminozones of aspartic acid and acid that is glutamic values representative of modern/Holocene foraminifera and also to evaluate normal variability of Holocene D/L values between depositional settings.
