Athulya Babu accomplished her Masterthesis on the U-isotope variability in tropical corals and precision Th/U dating to age = 0

Athulya Babu

Athulya Babu has accomplished her Masterthesis and proved that decadal variability of the ratio 234U/238U in seawater is detectable in tropical corals. Observed changes in the Gulf of Mexico are likely the result of changing freshwater discharge by the Amazon and Missippi or regional submerged groundwaters. Furthermore, she improved the Th/U dating technique of very young corals to ultimately reach for the 0 age in Th/U dating with success. Congratulations for the major technological progress made through your work.
