MARINE MICROPALAEONTOLOGICAL METHODS
Since most to the older archaeological sites(Charles type and older) have
been covered by the rising sea, it is possible to use marine foraminifera
to help interpret the time of sea-level rise, the change in seawater salinity
and the change in water circulation through Montague Harbour.
Cribroelphidium foraminosum(cushman,1939)X 130
C. foraminosum (indicative of low-salinity environments) were used to
help interpret the paleo-ocean environment in the Harbour.
