Highlighted Project

DEC 13 - 27

Multi-proxy Calibration along the NW Iberian margin: Improving paleoceanographic reconstructions

With this project we intend to contribute to a better understanding of the most useful proxies in Paleoceanography in order to minimize the ambiguity and maximize the accuracy of past estimation in a costal upwelling region. For that we calibrate and validate multi-proxy records along the NW Iberian margin
