Coupled climate and subarctic Pacific nutrient upwelling over the last 850,000 years (2019)
Journal Article
Worne, S., Kender, S., Swann, G. E., Leng, M. J., & Ravelo, A. C. (2019). Coupled climate and subarctic Pacific nutrient upwelling over the last 850,000 years. Earth and Planetary Science Letters, 522, doi:10.1016/j.epsl.2019.06.028

High latitude deep water upwelling has the potential to control global climate over glacial timescales through the biological pump and ocean-atmosphere CO2 exchange. However, there is currently a lack of continuous long nutrient upwelling records wit... Read More

A landscape perspective of Holocene organic carbon cycling in coastal SW Greenland lake-catchments (2018)
Journal Article
Anderson, N., Leng, M., Osburn, C., Fritz, S., Law, A., & McGowan, S. (2018). A landscape perspective of Holocene organic carbon cycling in coastal SW Greenland lake-catchments. Quaternary Science Reviews, 202, 98-108. doi:10.1016/j.quascirev.2018.09.006

Arctic organic carbon (OC) stores are substantial and have accumulated over millennia as a function of changes in climate and terrestrial vegetation. Arctic lakes are also important components of the regional C-cycle as they are sites of OC productio... Read More

Age and growth rate estimations of the commercially fished gastropod Buccinum undatum (2018)
Journal Article
Hollyman, P. R., Chenery, S. R., Leng, M. J., Laptikhovsky, V. V., Colvin, C. N., & Richardson, C. A. (2018). Age and growth rate estimations of the commercially fished gastropod Buccinum undatum. ICES Journal of Marine Science, doi:10.1093/icesjms/fsy100

Calculating age and growth rate for the commercially important whelk, Buccinum undatum in the aid of fishery management has historically been undertaken using growth rings on the organic operculum. This is difficult due to their poor readability and... Read More
