Seasonal Temperatures and Acidification of sensitive Marine settings: Insight of an uNmatched macro-invertebrate Archive.

Project description

Seasonality data for ocean acidification prediction

Marine organisms that are sensitive to pH are overstressed by the increased seasonal pCO2 difference. The rising of the seasonal cycle of sea surface temperature (SST) aggravates the situation, making the understanding of its effects on ocean acidification instrumental. However, no data for long-term SST-pH dynamics assessment are available. The EU-funded STAMINA training-through-research project will combine SST and pH to obtain the first record of seasonality for the collapse of the Late Palaeozoic Ice Age that presents analogies with today’s climate change. It will inquire into the seasonality in modern brachiopods’ shells, extract seasonal time series of SST and pH from key fossils, compare deep past and recent long-term series, and promote understanding for predicting future changes.
