Dr. Ute Merkel
Titel: Paleoclimate simulations for Marine Isotope Stage 3, LGM and Mid Holocen
The field program to measure methan emissions from mining is now completed and we are eager to see the results
Geochimica Cosmochimica Acta
Jens Fohlmeister and the team working on caves of the Swiss Alp have shown how calcite and aragonite precipitation
fractionates stable isotopes which can now be corrected for when time series of stalagmites present such features along their growth axes.
Journal of Quaternary Science
Fabio Hering and the Chan Hole cave (Mexico) research team have demonstrated evidence of humans occupation
for more than 1200 years during the early and middle Holocene, with interruptions caused by global sea level
rise and cave flooding.
Earth & Planet. Sci. Lett.
Freya Hemsing has published a very first assessment of the Ba-isotope fractionation between seawater and
cold-water corals, which demonstrates its potential as possible paleo-nutrient type tracer.
