    Kokarev, Valentin; Tachon, Mathieu; Austad, Marthe; Mcgovern, Maeve; Reiss, Henning (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-02-16)
    Fjords play an important role in carbon cycling and sequestration, but the burial of organic matter in sediments strongly depends on the composition of macrobenthic communities. We studied three deep, sub-Arctic fjords located in northern Norway to assess the community differentiation of neighbouring fjords and the underlying environmental drivers. The fjords have relatively deep depositional basins ...
  • Ventilation History of the Nordic Seas Deduced from Pelagic‐Benthic Radiocarbon Age Offsets 

    Telesiński, Maciej M.; Ezat, Mohamed; Muschitiello, Francesco; Bauch, Henning A.; Spielhagen, Robert F. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-24)
    Changes in ocean circulation are considered a major driver of centennial-to-millennial scale climate variability during the last deglaciation. Using four sediment records from the Nordic Seas, we studied radiocarbon ventilation ages in subsurface and bottom waters to reconstruct past variations in watermass overturning. Planktic foraminiferal ages show significant spatial variability over most of ...
