Research Summary

Ultrahigh-resolution palaeoceanography and palaeoclimatology from laminated and fine-bedded marine and lacustrine sediments (includes development of analytical equipment and software) in Icehouse (Quaternary) and Greenhouse (mid-Cretaceous) climate conditions. Main research areas: Western margin of the Americas; North Atlantic and Caribbean.
Palaeoceanography, diagenesis, and stratigraphy of Cretaceous radiolaria with particular emphasis on Austral and Tethyan faunas as tool for plate tectonic reconstruction (SE Asia).
Geochemistry, isotope chemistry and palaeoceanography of organic-rich sediments.
Sedimentary response to sea level changes (mid-Cretaceous, S. Morocco, northern South America).
Infracambrian in North Africa.
