Summary: Diatom analyses of upper Pliocene and Pleistocene sediments (∼2780-290 ka age, dated according to the results of onboard calcareous nannoplankton biostratigraphic research) from the Canterbury Basin continental slope (Hole U1352B of Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Expedition 317) reveal strong warm and cold fluctuations that coincide with global benthic foraminiferal δ18O records, although the preservation and occurrences of diatoms were generally poor and rare, respectively, and the diatom biostratigraphic events were unknown. Moreover, abundant occurrences of diatom resting spores from ∼1700 to 1100 ka indicate that eutrophication increased along the coastal region after upwelling strengthened and the nutrient supply was unstable and sporadic from 1250 to 1100 ka.
