Paleoceanography, paleoclimatology and stratigraphy of the SWERUS-C3 sediment core material
01/01/2014 - 31/12/2017
This proposal focus on investigations of the sediment core material to be acquired during the SWERUS-C3 program in 2014, from five selected sample boxes along the East Siberian margin and upper continental slope. The project is composed of the following components: (i) Analyses o...

Reconstructing the oceanography of the climatically sensitive low-latitude Pacific Ocean since the late Miocene
01/01/2011 - 31/12/2013
Sediment collected from selected drill holes at low latitudes in the Pacific Ocean will be used to reconstruct past changes in the temperature, salinity, export productivity and upwelling of this region over the last 8 million years. Over one thousand of bulk sediment samples and...

Early-Middle Miocene Paleoceanography from the Equatorial Pacific Ocean
01/01/2008 - 31/12/2010
As the largest ocean, the Pacific is intricately linked to major changes in the global climate system that took place during the Cenozoic (0-65 Ma). Throughout the Cenozoic the Pacific plate has had a northward component. Thus, the Pacific is unique, in that the thick sediment b...

Geologic History of Biogenic Carbonate Burial in the Open Ocean
01/03/2002 - 29/02/2004
Jorijntje Henderiks joined my research group as a rather young graduate student in February 1997 with very high recommendations by her former M.S. supervisors Jan van Hinte and Wolfgang Schlager at the FrijeUniversiteit Amsterdam. While here at the ETH she has pursued her PhD stu...

Late Holocene Shallow Marine Environments of Europe
01/01/2001 - 31/12/2003
Modelling predictions of the climate system's response to anthropogenic forcings are severely inhibited by inadequate understanding of natural climate variability. HOLSMEER proposes to improve our understanding of this natural variability through the search for, interpretation, a...
