Atlantic to Pacific – deep sea coral
insights into the deglaciation

In this talk I will discuss advances and challenges in using
deep-sea corals as well-dated archives of past ocean behaviour. U-series
dating allows comparisons of the Atlantic, Pacific and Southern Oceans on
the same timescales, whilst new developments continue to improve the
reliability of geochemical proxies. I will bring together these approaches to
examine changes in carbon and temperature of the deep ocean during the
deglaciation.
