Paleogene polar plankton and paleoproductivity: new proxy data from the Eocene - Oligocene transition

Gayane Asatryan , Volkan Özen , Gabrielle Rodrigues de Faria , David Lazarus & Johan Renaudie
Polar plankton plays a large role in global carbon cycling. There is a significant lack of knowledge of these biotas, however. The main goal of our project is to understand how plankton and oceans interacted in the past during the Eocene/Oligocene (E/O) transition, when significant climate shifts happened. We use a multiproxy approach by combining microfossils and geochemical data. Our study includes the first-ever comprehensive surveys of both diatom and radiolarian plankton diversity (siliceous protists...
