IODP expedition 383

Dynamics of Pacific Antarctic Circumpolar Current (DYNAPACC)

20 May to 20 July 2019

IODP Expedition 383 aims to investigate Pliocene-Pleistocene atmosphere-ocean-cryosphere dynamics of the Pacific Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC), and their role in regional and global climate and atmospheric CO2 based on sediment records with the highest possible stratigraphic resolution.

Our lab participates in the reconstruction of changes in changes in sea surface temperature, dust input, export production and nutrient dynamics using organic biomarkers and fossil-bound Nitrogen isotopes. Simone Moretti (PhD student at the AMG_lab) participated in the expedition as an organic geochemist, read more about his experience on board of the Joides Resolution here.
