The impact of continental break-up on the global carbon cycle

Project Rationale. The rupture of continents and the formation of new ocean basins are perhaps the most dramatic phenomena in global tectonics but these processes are rarely shown in text book cartoons of the plate tectonic and biogeochemical cycles (e.g., Kelemen & Manning, 2015). Read more

Examining the evolutionary loss of calcification in coccolithophores

Project Rationale. Coccolithophores are unicellular photosynthetic organisms that build intricate calcium carbonate plates, called coccoliths, with which they surround themselves (see image here. Read more

Impact of tidal mixing on shelf sea dynamics under strong tidal influences

Project Rationale. Shelf seas are a critical interface in the Earth System where land-sea exchange of riverine loads (nutrients, sediment, pollutants) and oceanic matter (salt, carbon, biota) strongly affects the health and functioning of marine ecosystems, significantly changing the global carbon cycle and climate.

Effective monitoring of deep-sea fauna using towed cameras

Project Rationale. Responsible environmental monitoring is fundamental to understanding and protecting marine environments and the sustainable development of marine resources, such as deep-sea mining, offshore oil and gas, or renewables. Read more

The role of stratosphere-troposphere coupling on North Atlantic air-sea interactions

Project Rationale. Lu et al. (2021) has developed a new index based on Ertel’s potential vorticity in the upper stratosphere. They show that the early winter conditions in the upper stratosphere play a key role in processing disturbances from the troposphere and then transmitting the signals back to the surface. Read more
