The Pleistocene Evolution of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current: An Interglacial Perspective
Bjerknes Distinguished Speaker seminar
with visiting professor Dr. Ian Hall from Cardiff University, UK
It is a pleasure to invite you all to a Bjerknes seminar with our visiting researcher Professor Ian Hall from School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Cardiff University. Ian is an expert in applications of high-resolution paleoclimate proxy reconstructions from marine sediment cores spanning late Pleistocene and Holocene climate variability (the last 1.5 million years).
This is achieved through the development, application, and integrated analysis of sedimentary, isotopic. and geochemical proxies that quantitatively carry the physical signals of differing components of the climate system, for instance surface ocean conditions (temperature structure, salinity) and the flow speed and hydrography of deep ocean currents, during key periods of past climate change. In this seminar, Ian will provide new sedimentary proxy records from the Southern Ocean unravelling the evolution of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current through the Pleistocene epoch.
