Sujets de recherche

Main Topics: The ocean’s role in climate changes is the main focus of my activities, considering circulation and marine environment changes and ocean carbon cycle. I study particularly centennial to millenial events of the last 130 kyears and orbital time scales for the last 3Myrs. Most of the tools I use relate to benthic and planktonic foraminifera geochemistry and assemblages, so I also work on foraminifera growth and calibration of their isotopic and trace element compositions to increase the precision and accuracy of paleoclimate records. I use also geochemical properties of marine sediment with XRF analyses and their calibration. A special attention concerns the chronology of the records and I’m part of the Intimate international group and of different national and international projects focused on chronology of climate records and on Southern Ocean evolution.
