Exploring the carbon isotopic ratio and chemistry of coccoliths and coccolith associated polysaccharides as a proxy for CO2

Abstract:

Our planet is habitable, in part, due to the carbon dioxide (CO2) that resides in our at- mosphere. Whilst the presence of CO2 ensures that ambient surface temperatures remain above freezing, additional inputs of CO2 drive global temperatures higher. The long-term increase in temperature associated with an increase in the mixing ratio of CO22 in the at- mosphere (pCO2) is, however, not certain. In order to understand how much our planet’s temperature rises ...
