Interdecadal Temperature Variability in Climate Model Simulations and Paleoclimate Data »

1pm 10 October 2019

Melting ice shelves and iron-controlled primary productivity in the Amundsen Sea, West Antarctica »

1pm 3 October 2019

Professor Sherrell discusses sources of iron across the Antarctic continental shelf that are critical to ecosystems within the Southern ocean. Observations are used to identify multiple sources of iron with different seasonal abundances and determine future responses of the system to climate forcing.

Rob Sherrell (Rutgers) »

12pm 2 October 2019

Rob studies the biogeochemistry of trace metals in the modern ocean and uses this understanding to develop new geochemical palaeo-records of past ocean conditions. He is very active in the GEOTRACES programme, and has a strong focus on geochemical palaeo-proxy method development.
