Frontiers of clumped isotopes in paleoceanography and paleoclimatology
October 8, 2020: Dr. Aradhna Tripati
The Grace Anne Stewart Speaker Series is pleased to invite you all to our next Zoom webinar with Dr. Aradhna Tripati on Thursday, October 8 at 11:00AM MDT (18:00 GMT +1)! Dr. Tripati is an associate professor at UCLA and is the Center for Diverse Leadership in Science Director. She will be speaking on Frontiers of clumped isotopes in paleoceanography and paleoclimatology.
Abstract: The carbonate clumped isotope thermometer is a promising proxy for the study of environmental change through time. Over the past decade, I have pioneered studying the systematics of carbonate clumped isotopes in foraminifera and coccoliths and discovered potential sources of kinetic effects. This presentation will include discussion of equilibrium and kinetic fractionations, calibration results, interlaboratory comparison, and applications to Cenozoic paleoceanographic and paleoclimatic reconstructions.
