E) Paleoclimate research

1. U-Th dating in coral and/or dripstone

The work includes method development and application of U-Th dating on samples relevant for paleoclimatological studies. The student will need to develop methodology for U-Th dating by utilizing multicollector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry and different sampling, sample preparation and introduction techniques. Further on, application on relevant samples will be performed.
