Research summary

Past changes in earth's climatic state act as "natural experiments", the study of which can aid our understanding of earth system processes and act to constrain models which are used to predict the future evolution of earth's climate. Understanding of how the oceans changed during these periods is of particular importance, since the global oceans play a crucial role in the storage and distribution of heat, carbon and nutrients around the planet.

The chemistry of deep sea corals has been shown to vary with various oceanographic parameters (e.g. temperature, salinity, DIC content), motivating their use as a ...
