Cyanobacterial diversity and related sedimentary facies as a function of water flow conditions: Example from the Monasterio de Piedra Natural Park (Spain).Download
The River Piedra in the Monasterio de Piedra Natural Park (NE Spain) is a modern tufa-depositing river that encompasses various depositional environments that are inhabited by different cyanobacterial populations. Molecular (16S rDNA) and morphological analyses of the cyanobacteria from different...
Decline and partial rebound of the Labrador Current 1993-2004: Monitoring ocean currents from altimetric and conductivity-temperature-depth dataDownload
Monitoring and understanding of Labrador Current variability is important because it is intimately linked to the meridional overturning circulation and the marine ecosystem off northeast North America. Nevertheless, knowledge of its decadal variability is inadequate because of scarcity of current...
Diagenesis in limestone-dolostone successions after 1 million years of sea level fluctuations: A case study from Grand Cayman, British West Indies.Download
Meteoric diagenesis in young marine carbonate sediments has commonly been linked to fluctuations in Quaternary glacio-eustatic sea levels. The extent to which these sea-level changes are recorded in these carbonate successions, however, remains questionable. This is amply demonstrated by the...
Diagenetic overprint on negative <delta>13C excursions across the Permian/Triassic boundary: A case study from Meishan section, China.Download
The Meishan Section D from China is the global stratotype section and point (GSSP) of the Permian-Triassic boundary (PTB). The succession has been divided into 115 beds with the PTB being placed in the middle of Bed 27. In this section and the laterally equivalent Section A, the diagenetic...
Dynamic carbonate sedimentation in a shallow coastal lagoon: Case study of South Sound, Grand Cayman, British West IndiesDownload
South Sound is a 3.4 km-, shallow (.: 2 m), funnel-shaped lagoon located on the southwest exposed windward margin of Grand Cayman. The composition and distribution of the Thalassia, Sand, Rock Bottom, Brown Algae, Rubble, and Coral Head facies, are controlled by the dynamic interplay between...
Effect of a variable eddy transfer coefficient in an eddy-permitting model of the subpolar North Atlantic OceanDownload
The effect of using a variable eddy transfer coefficient for the Gent–McWilliams (GM) parameterization in a (1/3)°-resolution ocean model of the subpolar North Atlantic Ocean is investigated. Results from four experiments with different implementations of this coefficient are compared among...
Climate change has the potential to dramatically change the world as we know, both in terms of the environment and the way in which societies operate. Public policy responses to climate change continue to evolve, with many western economies proposing mechanisms for emission reductions, for...
First records of syn-diagenetic non-tectonic folding in Quaternary thermogene travertines caused by hydrothermal incremental veining.Download
Alçiçek, M.C., Alçiçek, H., Altunel, E., Arenas, C., Bons, P., Brogi, A., Capezzuoli, E., de Riese, T., Della Porta, G., Gandin, A., Guo, L., Jones, B., Karabacak, V., Kershaw, S., Liotta, D., Mindszenty, A., Pedley, M., Ronchi, P., Swennen, R., Temiz, U.
This study is the first documentation of syn-diagenetic non-tectonic contractional deformations observed in two Pleistocene thermogene travertine deposits from the late Miocene-Pleistocene Tuscan extensional-hydrothermal province (Italy). The deposits consist of primary porous beds hosting...
A series of experiments with an ocean general circulation model of the Mediterranean forced by artificial (but realistic) surface fluxes of heat and freshwater are performed. The model has a stable thermohaline circulation under the baseline fluxes. Small decreases in excess evaporation (8%)...
Cenozoic ‘island dolostones’ are found on islands throughout the oceans of the world. Due to their geological youth and lack of deep burial, these dolostones provide an opportunity to resolve some of the mysteries surrounding the dolomite problem. In island dolostone bodies, which are of variable...
