Environmental controls on calcification of phytoplankton from the geological record

Why are the oceans supersaturated with respect to calcium carbonate? Foraminifera and coccolithophores generate over 2 billion tonnes of carbonate/yr1 but what limits this production? Our lack of understanding of the response of pelagic calcification to environmental change hinders any predictions of the future ocean carbon cycle and ecosystem. Read more

OP2354 Exploring the health and environmental drivers of coral reef bright spots

NERC ONE Planet DTP. Coral reefs are biodiversity hotspots that provide key societal benefits to millions of people living in tropical coastal communities (Costanza et al., 2014, Glob. Read more

E4 DTP The rise of coccolith calcification

Summary. This project will address the evolution of biomineralization in haptophytes, potentially triggered by changing oxygen concentrations in the oceans in deep time. Read more

Testing the links between mass extinctions, volcanism and ocean chemistry

Why do some large volcanic eruptions create mass extinctions whilst others don’t? There is an emerging link between volcanically driven mass extinctions, such as those at the Permo-Triassic boundary and the end-Triassic, the development of anoxia, and low concentrations of sulfate in the oceans (He et al, 2020).

Use of Fungi as a Means of Producing Concrete-Like Construction Materials

Concrete is one of the World’s most ubiquitous materials. It has achieved this through its versatility, durability and low cost. However, the manufacture of a key ingredient - Portland cement – contributes 4% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Read more
