Geochemical Proxies in Paleoenvironmental Analysis
Geography's influence on oxygen isotope distribution (Pederzani and Britton, 2019)

Geochemical Proxies in Paleoenvironmental Analysis


The course covers the application of sedimentary geochemistry with special consideration of major and trace elements, rare earth elements (REE), stable and radiogenic isotopes. The application of geochemical proxies to reconstructions of the climate as well as of the paleoenvironmental conditions will be introduced.

Participants will be trained to use and interpret the geochemical proxies by working on examples from the Geological history.
