  • Geochemical imprints of genotypic variants of Globigerina bulloides in the Arabian Sea 

    Sadekov, Aleksey Yu.; Darling, Kate F.; Ishimura, Toyoho; Wade, Christopher M.; Kimoto, Katsunori; Singh, Arun Deo; Anand, Pallavi; Kroon, Dick; Jung, Simon; Ganssen, Gerald; Ganeshram, Raja; Tsunogai, Urumu; Elderfield, Henry (2016-10-29) - Journal article
    Planktonic foraminifera record oceanic conditions in their shell geochemistry. Many palaeoenvironmental studies have used fossil planktonic foraminifera to constrain past seawater properties by defining species based on ...
  • Identifying bird remains using ancient DNA barcoding 

    Dalén, Love; Lagerholm, Vendela K.; Nylander, Johan A. A.; Barton, Nick; Bochenski, Zbigniew M.; Tomek, Teresa; Rudling, David; Ericson, Per G. P.; Irestedt, Martin; Stewart, John R. (2017-06-21) - Journal article
    Bird remains that are difficult to identify taxonomically using morphological methods, are common in the palaeontological record. Other types of challenging avian material include artefacts and food items from endangered ...
  • A record of Neogene seawater δ11B reconstructed from paired δ11B analyses on benthic and planktic foraminifera 

    Greenop, Rosanna; Hain, Mathis P.; Sosdian, Sindia M.; Oliver, Kevin I. C.; Goodwin, Philip; Chalk, Thomas B.; Lear, Caroline H.; Wilson, Paul A.; Foster, Gavin L. (2017-02-24) - Journal article
    The boron isotope composition (δ11B) of foraminiferal calcite reflects the pH and the boron isotope composition of the seawater the foraminifer grew in. For pH reconstructions, the δ11B of seawater must therefore be known, ...
  • The transport of Icelandic volcanic ash: insights from northern European cryptotephra records 

    Watson, E. J.; Swindles, G. T.; Stevenson, J. A.; Savov, I.; Lawson, I. T. (2016-10-30) - Journal article
    Fine ash produced during volcanic eruptions can be dispersed over a vast area, where it poses a threat to aviation, human health, and infrastructure. We analyze the particle size distributions, geochemistry, and glass shard ...
