Geology Cover July 2014
Around ca. 56 million years ago there was a major global environmental perturbation attributed to a rapid rise in the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The period, called the Palaeocene-Eocene boundary, is often used as an analogue for a future greenhouse world. This paper shows for the first time that temperatures of tropical oceans rose to greater than 40oC and may have been the cause of loss of some marine biota at this time.


Jonathan Dean Graduation
Congratulations to Dr Jonathan Dean who graduated from the University of Nottingham yesterday. Jonathan is currently working within the Stable Isotope Facility at the BGS as an Isotope Apprentice. His PhD research was entitled: Stable Isotope Analysis and U-Th Dating of Late Glacial and Holocene Lacustrine Sediments from Central Turkey.


Dr Jonathan Dean
This paper considers whether the Anthropocene is recorded in the isotope geochemistry of the atmosphere, sediments, plants and ice cores, and the time frame during which any changes are recorded, presenting examples from the literature. Dean, J.R, Leng, M.J., Mackay, A.W. 2014. Is there an isotopic signature of the Anthropocene? The Anthropocene Review.
