Global biological productivity during abrupt climate change

Project description

Biological O2 productivity in sudden climate change

Understanding how global biological O2 (atmospheric oxygen) productivity reacts to sudden climate change is key for projecting future climate and environmental change. Due to poor temporal resolution of existing data, studies have mainly focused on global O2 productivity change over the glacial-interglacial transitions. The EU-funded OXYPRO project will reconstruct the global primary productivity change over the Heinrich Stadial (HS). A HS event is a naturally occurring abrupt climate change triggered by the collapse of northern hemisphere ice shelves and the consequent release of glacial meltwater into the North Atlantic Ocean. This project will be carried out at the Physics of Ice, Climate and Earth at Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen.
