  • Early to middle Miocene foraminifera from the deep-sea ...

    The Early-Middle Miocene represents an important time in Earth's history as it was a transitional phase between the Paleogene climatic high and the 'icehouse' climate of the Neo-gene. The Early Miocene witnessed a series of fluctuating Ant-arctic glacial and interglacial episodes which culminated in the warmest period of the Neogene ...

  • Miocene Epoch | Geology Page

    These subdivisions within the Miocene are defined by the relative abundance of different species of calcareous nanofossils (calcite platelets shed by brown single-celled algae) and foraminifera (single-celled protists with diagnostic shells). Two subdivisions each form the Early, Middle and Late Miocene. Regionally, other systems are used.

    Yet, their Discriminant Function Analysis (DFA) of the same faunas identified a mix of open forest (2/6) and rainforest sites (4/6) for the early Miocene, and all five middle Miocene sites as open forest. Thus their own data imply a mosaic of habitats in space and time in the Riversleigh area of northern Australia.

  • Synapsida: Age of Mammals: The Miocene (Pt 1)

    While temperatures may have cooled a little as the Early Miocene progressed, they rose again during the Mid Miocene, leading to the two-to-three million year long Middle Miocene Climactic Optimum, with temperatures in southern Europe estimated to have reached a decidedly subtropical 22°C (72°F), accompanied by a heavy annual rainfall. Indeed ...
