Boron Isotope Measurements on Artic Ocean Foraminifera

Lead PI: Dr. Baerbel Hoenisch

Unit Affiliation: Geochemistry, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)

October 2013 - September 2014
Inactive
Arctic Ocean
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The project funded the analysis of benthic foraminifera samples from Arctic Ocean sediments

OUTCOMES: The samples were all of interglacial origin and showed too little variability for meaningful interpretation but they sparked interst to collect more data in a follow up study.
