Details of the paleoceanography of the Japan Sea between 5 and 0 Ma. We compare relative abundances of S. arachnea/lineata group, Phorticium spp., and species related to subarctic and arctic areas (the selected species are listed at the upper right in the figure) from Site U1425. These data are compared to Mg/Ca ratio data for plankton of the South Pacific and Atlantic (ODP 516/590, Karas et al. 2011, 2017) and benthic oxygen isotopes (Lisiecki and Raymo 2005)
