Palaeoceanographic and climate changes during the Holocene in Hinlopen Strait, northern Svalbard
This study investigates the paleoceanographic changes in the Hinlopen Strait, situated between Spitsbergen and Nordaustlandet, through a multi-proxy analysis of sediment core HH15-1280-GC (439 m water depth). Located near the Polar Front, this region is highly sensitive to even minor alterations in the ocean circulation and climate, which can be reconstructed from marine sediment records. The core was examined using a combination of foraminiferal and sedimentological parameters to elucidate the historical and pre-historical changes during the last 8000 years in the study area. This research aims to enhance our understanding of the region's paleoceanographic evolution and a better understanding of the factors controlling factors them.
