Cursusdoelen

On the basis of realistic scientific data, by the end of the course, student will:

  • be trained to identify and reconstruct the role of the ocean in past changes in climate;
  • be trained to identify , interpret and reconstruct paleoclimate and variations there in;
  • be trained in general academic skills such as written presentations.
Inhoud
(Paleo)ocean circulation during different climatic regimes and related proxy variability will be discussed while sequentially introducing different concepts and aspects. Theory and application of marine proxies will be illustrated by relevant case studies. In particular the Glacial world will be contrasted to the (present-day) Interglacial, and compared to high-frequency (e.g. El-Nino) paleoceanographic and proxies variations. Amongst the aspects to be discussed are: Glacial climate and its forcing; sediment dating techniques; paleoproductvity; pCO2 reconstruction; oxygenation; sea surface temperature; deep water circulation; and proxy preservation. Current important scientific questions will be addressed and different view points discussed. The course teaches students hands on scientific research so that they can ‘hit the ground running’ in climate related projects.
