Field Activity 10CEV01

Identifier 10CEV01
Purpose Calibrate sediment proxies during a sediment trap experiment to reconstruct Holocene climate variability in the northern Gulf of Mexico
Location Northern Gulf of Mexico
Summary This project seeks to reconstruct Holocene climate variability in the northern Gulf of Mexico by calibrating faunal, isotopic and geochemical proxy records from deep-sea sediments using sediment trap material and concurrent hydrographic and climatological measurements
Info derived Faunal, geochemical and isotopic data from sediment trap, geochemical analysis of seawater
