Coordinated european surface ocean palaeo-estimation collaboration

Objective

CESOP intends to significantly improve our ability to reconstruct oceanic climate variability beyond the instrumental period (>100 years). It will provide critical data for testing/validating climate models over time scales decisive for climate prediction. State of the art palaeo-observation methods will be improved and CESOP will build upon a unique European world-class network of collaborating laboratories. The partners treat the infrastructure units as an Integrated System of Infrastructures to jointly utilise the specific strengths of each facility. The project will develop highly accurate methods with a major improved accuracy compared with more traditional approaches, utilising the Mg/Ca paleothermotry technique. The technique will be calibrated against modern ocean variables, standardised analytical methods will be developed, the method will be checked against alternate methods, new climatic time series and time slices produced
