Abstract

Foraminiferal and thecamoebian faunas from the Seymour-BelizeInletComplex (SBIC), a fjord network situated on the mainland coast of BritishColumbia, were studied to assess climatic cycles and trends impacting the area through the ∼ AD 850–AD 2002 interval. Ocean circulation patterns prevalent in the SBIC are strongly linked to precipitation, which is closely linked to the relative strength and position (center of action; COA) of the seasonally developed AleutianLow (AL) and NorthPacificHigh (NPH) atmospheric circulation gyres.
