Environmental and biological controls on the shell geochemistry of the planktic foraminifera Orbulina Universa

Holland, Katherine


Foraminifera make excellent archives of past oceans and climate because they grow calcium carbonate shells which incorporate trace element and stable isotopes that reflect the seawater conditions in which they grow. This study aims to: (i) improve understanding of the factors that influence trace element and stable isotope incorporation into foraminifera shells, and (ii) improve proxy calibrations for reconstructing past ocean carbonate system parameters and...[Show more]
