Paper published in Paleoceanography


Working as part of an international team of scientists from the United Kingdom, France, Spain and Germany, Badley Ashton's Dr. Aurelie Bonin has had a paper published in the journal 'Paleooceanography'. Entitled "Cool episode and platform demise in the Early Aptian: New insights on the links between climate and carbonate production".  The paper uses δ18O data from bivalves and fish teeth to re-assess the temperature variations during the early Aptian, a period of time marked by an enhancement of primary productivity resulting in the Aptian source rock and worldwide carbonate platform demise.  The study emphasizes a cooling episode and investigates its role into the carbonate production crisis.
