My research interests include the changes in sea surface temperature and
salinities in the Gulf of Mexico during the early Holocene using Mg/Ca
and d18O records generated from planktonic foraminifera. We hope to establish
the relationship between the subtropics and high latitude climate variability
by comparing our high resolution records with Greenland ice core records.
