Secrets from a deep reef: Melanie Douarin, University of Edinburgh

  1. 1. Secrets from a deep reef:Structure, biogeography and palaeoclimate reconstruction from Mingulay Reef Complex sediment coresMelanie Douarin (University of Edinburgh), SAGES PhD Project (1) Propose a model of cold-water coral reef build-up => CTscan images – fossils identification (2) Reconstruct the spatial and temporal growth history of the reef = > Downcore and surface dating (3) Document ocean circulation changes => Coupled U-series and Radiocarbon dating on Lophelia sp. (4) Test if trace/minor elements composition in Lophelia sp. skeleton could be used for palaeo-environmental reconstructions (i.e Temperature – Salinity) => High resolution ion microprobe study
