  • Assessing Arctica islandica as a proxy for Scottish marine climate change 

    Stott, Keziah J. (University of St Andrews, 2014-06-25) - Thesis
    This thesis investigates the potential of the bivalve Arctica islandica (Linnaeus, 1767) from fjordic sites in NW Scotland for reconstructing past marine environmental /climatic variability. Using dendrochronological and ...
  • Continental carbonate facies of a Neoproterozoic panglaciation, north-east Svalbard 

    Fairchild, Ian J.; Fleming, Edward J.; Bao, Huiming; Benn, Douglas I.; Boomer, Ian; Dublyansky, Yuri V.; Halverson, Galen P.; Hambrey, Michael J.; Hendy, Chris; McMillan, Emily A.; Spötl, Christoph; Stevenson, Carl T. E.; Wynn, Peter M. (2016-02) - Journal article
    The Marinoan panglaciation (ca 650 to 635 Ma) is represented in north-east Svalbard by the 130 to 175 m thick Wilsonbreen Formation which contains syn-glacial carbonates in its upper 100 m. These sediments are now known ...
  • The potential of high resolution palaeoclimate reconstruction from Arctica islandica 

    Foster, Laura (University of St Andrews, 2007) - Thesis
    The potential of Arctica islandica, a long lived marine bivalve with a lifespan of over 300 years, to reconstruct a high resolution (sub-annual) climate record is explored in this thesis. Fluctuations in trace element ...
