The Boron Geochemistry of Biogenic Silica: Insights from Marine Sponges and Diatoms
This thesis investigates whether the boron geochemistry of biogenic silica is linked to seawater pH or other environmental variables, and assesses its potential as a tool for palaeoceanographic reconstructions. Biogenic silica is an especially important palaeoceanographic archive in the Southern Ocean, where carbonate preservation is poor, however to date there is little published data on the boron geochemistry of biogenic silica. This study presents new...[Show more]
