Rhodoliths as environmental archives in the tropics
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. Recent coralline red algae studies show that the variations of specific trace elements along these growth bands can reflect secular changes in various environmental parameters. This study aims at assessing and...[Show more]
