Data on the Shackleton, Fairbanks, Chiu, Parrenin 2004 timescale from: Absolute calibration of the Greenland time scale: implications for Antarctic time scales and for δ14C (N.J Shackleton, R.G Fairbanks, Tzu-chien Chiu, F. Parrenin, 2004, Quaternary Science Reviews) are available here: 2004 SFCP timescale data. A PDF of the article is available here:2004 SFCP timescale paper

 

Data from Delmotte, M., J. Chappellaz, E. Brook, P. Yiou, J. M. Barnola, C. Goujon, D. Raynaud, and V. I. Lipenkov, (2004) Atmospheric methane during the last four glacial-interglacial cycles: Rapid changes and their link with Antarctic temperature. J. Geophys. Res., 109, D1210 is available here: Vostok high resolution methane record.

 

Data from Tzedakis,P.C, Roucoux,K.H., de Abreu, L. and Shackleton, N.J., (2004) The duration of forest stages in Southern Europe and interglacial climate variability. Science, 306 pp2231-2235, is now (17 Feb 2005) available here: MD012443 pollen record.

 

The POP project is an international research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework Programme, and contributes to the implementation of the Key Action Global Change, Climate and Biodiversity, within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development framework. Contract No.: EVK2-2000-00089. (See the European Commission Community Research website).

The graph below shows the alignment of planktonic and benthic oxygen isotope stratigraphies from MD-952042, with ice core records from Greenland and Antarctica, which have been synchronised using their shared atmospheric methane records. See: N J Shackleton, Science vol 291, p58-59, and N J Shackleton, M A Hall, E Vincent, Paleoceanography 15, p565, 2000.

International team head to Papua New Guinea to measure volcanic carbon degassing

Sep 01, 2016

An international team of scientists is traveling to the islands of Papua New Guinea this September to study degassing from active volcanoes in remote jungles there. Some of these volcanoes are among the most active on Earth, ejecting a significant proportion of global volcanic gases into the atmosphere.
