Understanding climate
for the benefit of society

Carin Andersson

Research focuses on the study of paleoceanography and paleoclimatology in both Recent and geological times

• Stable isotopes and other geochemical tools to investigate paleoclimates and ocean history as recorded in deep-sea sediments and accretionary carbonates.

• High-resolution climate and seasonality reconstructions from annually banded records, such as bivalves and otoliths.

• Cold-water corals, i.e. Lophelia pertusa

• Ocean acidification

• Marine micropaleontology

• Radiocarbon and U/Th dating

Main methods: marine paleoproxies, paleoreconstructions, sclerochronology, dating methods, sedimentology, geochemistry

Area/ Region: North Atlantic
