My ongoing research focuses on the micropaleontological study of a 282cm core recovered from a cold-water coral (CWC) reef off Lopphavet (Northern-Norway) with the aim of identifying and quantifying benthic foraminifera to reconstruct the paleoceanographical settings during the last 15'000 years.
My PhD concentrates on the ESF_EuroDiversity-MiCROSYSTEM cores recovered on the Pen-Duick Escarpment (Gulf of Cadiz) and on gravity cores from CWC ecosystems in the Alboran Sea.
Benthic and planktonic foraminifera will help revealing the history of the CWC ecosystem development in the last 150'000 years and the relation to ecological, oceanographical and climatic changes.
