Research questions

  • What are the processes that control the link between land and ocean climates in the geological past?
  • What is the role of marine biogeochemical cycles for global climate change?
  • How can we better disentangle the impact of anthropogenic perturbations from natural climate variability using historical and geological climate proxy records in combination with model simulations?
