Drift ice and sea ice proxies put to the test

2013-10-31 08:52

Comparing proxy-based marine reconstructions with instrumental  and observational data holds key information on the reliability of these proxies, as well as on processes explaining the observed environmental changes. In a recently released research paper involving CASE scientists from Univ. Plymouth (UK) and Univ. Boulder (USA), paleo-records in the form of phytoplankton-derived biomarkers and mineralogical characteristics of lithic grains are compared with historical and instrumental data of sea-ice and drift ice conditions in the Denmark Strait in order to understand the ice-sheet-ocean interactions in the area.
