Discovery of dolomite and magnesite in living coralline algae

Nash, Merinda Catherine


This Masters started as a consideration of the impacts of ocean acidification on high-magnesium calcite coralline algae. I shifted focus part way through to consider the composition of magnesium calcite sediments from the Great Barrier Reef. While investigating some inconsistencies in X-ray diffraction (XRD) results, I discovered that the coralline algae Hydrolithon onkodes samples I had analysed contained significant amounts of dolomite and magnesite and that this explained inconsistent...[Show more]
