Dr. Sourish Basu
NOAA Earth System Research
Titel: Measuring and modeling Carbon
Isotopes in the atmosphere
to diagnose the Carbon Cycle


Geochimica Cosmochimica Acta

Patrick Blaser demonstrates the resilience and sensitivity
of Northeast Atlantic deep water εNd to detrital fluxes
over the past 30,000 years

Chemical Geology

Rachel Morrison and the team working on the geochemistry of Nd in seawater have demonstrated a limited influence of basalt weathering inputs on its seawater isotope composition of the northern Iceland Basin.

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.

Physics of Environmental Archives

Physics of Environmental Archives explores the climate messages left in various geological sedimentary archives such as corals, speleothems, calcareous tufa and marine sediments. We are interested in conducting high precision U-series and radiocarbon dating (the later in close cooperation with the Curt Engelhorn Centre for Archeometry ) and we focus on the cycles of trace elements and isotopes which serve to fingerprint the climate information we intent to retrieve.
