• Application of Clumped Isotope Thermometry to Benthic Foraminifera 

      Piasecki, Alison; Bernasconi, Stefano M.; Grauel, Anna-Lena; Hannisdal, Bjarte; Ho, Sze Ling; Leutert, Thomas Jan; Marchitto, Thomas M.; Meinicke, Niklas; Tisserand, Amandine Aline; Meckler, Anna Nele (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-04)
      Obtaining absolute temperatures of the ocean in deep time is complicated by the lack of constraints on seawater chemistry. Seawater salinity, carbonate ion concentration, δ18O, and elemental abundance changes may obscure ...
    • Clumped isotope thermometry in bivalve shells: a tool for reconstructing seasonal upwelling 

      Caldarescu, Diana Elena; Sadatzki, Henrik; Dahl, Carin Andersson; Schäfer, Priska; Fortunato, Helena; Meckler, Anna Nele (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Carbonate clumped isotope thermometry is a powerful tool for reconstructing paleotemperature and paleosalinity. Despite its broad application in biotic and abiotic materials, its use in paleoclimate studies has been limited ...
    • Coupled Southern Ocean cooling and Antarctic ice sheet expansion during the middle Miocene 

      Leutert, Thomas Jan; Auderset, Alexandra; Martínez-García, Alfredo; Modestou, Sevasti Eleni; Meckler, Anna Nele (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The middle Miocene climate transition (~14 million years ago) was characterized by a dramatic increase in the volume of the Antarctic ice sheet. The driving mechanism of this transition remains under discussion, with ...
    • The DeepMIP contribution to PMIP4: methodologies for selection, compilation and analysis of latest Paleocene and early Eocene climate proxy data, incorporating version 0.1 of the DeepMIP database 

      Hollis, Christopher J.; Jones, Tom Dunkley; Anagnostou, Eleni; Bijl, Peter K.; Cramwinckel, Margot J.; Cui, Ying; Dickens, Gerald R.; Edgar, Kirsty M.; Eley, Yvette; Evans, David; Foster, Gavin L.; Frieling, Joost; Inglis, Gordon N.; Kennedy, Elizabeth M.; Kozdon, Reinhard; Lauretano, Vittoria; Lear, Caroline H.; Littler, Kate; Lourens, Lucas; Meckler, Anna Nele; Naafs, B. David A.; Pälike, Heiko; Pancost, Richard D.; Pearson, Paul N.; Röhl, Ursula; Royer, Dana L.; Salzmann, Ulrich; Schubert, Brian A.; Seebeck, Hannu; Sluijs, Appy; Speijer, Robert P.; Stassen, Peter; Tierney, Jessica; Tripati, Aradhna; Wade, Bridget; Westerhold, Thomas; Witkowski, Caitlyn; Zachos, James C.; Zhang, Yi Ge; Huber, Matthew; Lunt, Daniel J. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-07-25)
      The early Eocene (56 to 48 million years ago) is inferred to have been the most recent time that Earth's atmospheric CO2 concentrations exceeded 1000 ppm. Global mean temperatures were also substantially warmer than those ...
    • Fault-controlled fluid circulation and diagenesis along basin-bounding fault systems in rifts - Insights from the East Greenland rift system 

      Salomon, Eric; Rotevatn, Atle; Kristensen, Thomas Berg; Grundvåg, Sten-Andreas; Henstra, Gijs Allard; Meckler, Anna Nele; Albert, Richard; Gerdes, Axel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-11-05)
      In marine rift basins, deep-water clastics (>200 m) in the hanging wall of rift- or basin-bounding fault systems are commonly juxtaposed against crystalline “basement” rocks in the footwall. A distinct feature of such fault ...
    • Reducing Uncertainties in Carbonate Clumped Isotope Analysis Through Consistent Carbonate-Based Standardization 

      Bernasconi, Stefano M.; Muller, Inigo A; Bergmann, Kristin D; Breitenbach, Sebastian F.M.; Fernandez, Alvaro; Hodell, David A; Jaggi, Madalina; Meckler, Anna Nele; Millan, Isabel; Ziegler, Martin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018)
      About a decade after its introduction, the field of carbonate clumped isotope thermometry is rapidly expanding because of the large number of possible applications and its potential to solve long‐standing questions in Earth ...
    • Sensitivity of clumped isotope temperatures in fossil benthic and planktic foraminifera to diagenetic alteration 

      Leutert, Thomas Jan; Sexton, Philip; Tripati, Aradhna; Piasecki, Alison; Ho, Sze Ling; Meckler, Anna Nele (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Applying the clumped isotope (Δ47) thermometer to foraminifer microfossils offers the potential to significantly improve paleoclimate reconstructions, owing to its insensitivity to the isotopic composition of seawater ...
    • Warm Middle Miocene Indian Ocean Bottom Water Temperatures: Comparison of Clumped Isotope and Mg/Ca‐Based Estimates 

      Modestou, Sevasti Eleni; Leutert, Thomas Jan; Bremer, Alvaro Fernandez; Lear, Caroline H.; Meckler, Anna Nele (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The middle Miocene is an important analogue for potential future warm climates. However, few independent deep ocean temperature records exist, though these are important for climate model validation and estimates of changes ...
