Topics in Paleoecology, Paleoclimatology, and Paleoceanography - Environmental and Biotic Effects of Volcanism

Gerta Keller

ENROLLMENT BY APPLICATION OR INTERVIEW. DEPARTMENTAL PERMISSION REQUIRED.

This course concentrates on the use of marine microfossils in relative age dating and developing high-resolution age control (biostratigraphy) integrated with magnetostratigraphy, chemostratigraphy (stable isotopes), rare and unique bioevents (e.g., species extinctions, species evolution and major species population changes) and radiometric dating. This integrated high-resolution stratigraphic scheme is applied to sequences across geographic regions and oceans in an effort to correlate and identify age equivalent intervals globally.
