    • Biogeochemical significance of pelagic ecosystem function : an end-Cretaceous case study 

      Henehan, Michael; Hull, Pincelli; Penman, Donald; Rae, James William Buchanan; Schmidt, Daniela (2016-05) - Journal article
      Pelagic ecosystem function is integral to global biogeochemical cycling, and plays a major role in modulating atmospheric CO2 concentrations (pCO2). Uncertainty as to the effects of human activities on marine ecosystem ...
    • Deep water formation in the North Pacific and deglacial CO2 rise 

      Rae, James William Buchanan; Sarnthein, Michael; Foster, Gavin; Ridgwell, Andy; Grootes, Pieter; Elliott, Tim (2014-06) - Journal article
      Deepwater formation in the North Atlantic and Southern Ocean is widely thought to influence deglacial CO2 rise and climate change; here we suggest that deep water formation in the North Pacific may also play an important ...
    • High sea surface temperatures in tropical warm pools during the Pliocene 

      O'Brien, Charlotte; Foster, Gavin; Martinez-Boti, Miguel; Abell, Richard; Rae, James William Buchanan; Pancost, Richard (2014-08) - Journal article
      The western warm pools of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans are a critical source of heat and moisture for the tropical climate system. Over the past five million years, global mean temperatures have cooled by 3–4 °C. Yet, ...
    • Morphological response of planktic foraminifers to habitat modifications associated with the emergence of the Isthmus of Panama 

      Schmidt, Daniela; Caromel, Aude; Seki, O; Rae, James William Buchanan; Renaud, S (2016-10) - Journal article
      The impact of global change on marine ecosystems is a major concern for the future. Examples from the geological past may provide insight into how ecosystems respond to major shifts in environment. Here we use the progressive ...
    • The North Pacific from glacial to modern : assemblages, isotopes and CO₂ 

      Taylor, Ben Justin (University of St Andrews, 2019-06-26) - Thesis
      Investigating past changes in Earth’s climate can provide useful information for assessing future climate change scenarios. Planktic foraminifera preserved in marine sediment are commonly used as a tool to reconstruct past ...
