Within subproject A6 it is planned to reconstruct multi-year and seasonal atmospheric circulation patterns from Eocene marine bivalves from different latitudes using geochemical proxies (seawater temperature, δ18O, Mg/Ca, D47; Seawater pH – δ11B, B/Ca, U/Ca; Oxygen – Mn/Ca as well as the terrigenous input – Ba/Ca and 87Sr/86Sr).
