Rhodoliths as environmental archives in the tropics

Darrenougue, Nicolas


Rhodoliths are free-living forms of calcareous, coralline red algae that are found worldwide, from the tropics to the poles, in relatively shallow (0->250m) waters. They can live hundreds of years and continuously form a high-Mg calcite skeleton that presents periodical growth bands.

This study aims at assessing and...[Show more]
