Congratulations to Maddie Mette for winning a best paper award at the AGU 2014 Fall Meeting

PP42A-04 Linking North Atlantic Climate Dynamics with Shell Growth and Geochemistry in Northern Norway Very few long-term, continuous, high-resolution records of marine environmental conditions, such as seawater temperature and/or salinity, exist within the Arctic, hence, proxy-based records are needed to fully elucidate past marine climatic conditions. Our study uses the long-lived marine bivalve proxy, Arctica … Continue reading Congratulations to Maddie Mette for winning a best paper award at the AGU 2014 Fall Meeting
