Cretaceous Climate and Ocean Dynamics

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute

This site synthesizes the results of a Joint Oceanographic Institutions (JOI) and U.S. Science Support Program (USSSP) workshop. Recent progress, problems and future directions in Cretaceous climate and ocean dynamics research are reviewed with figures, primary data and references. Topics include: Cretaceous climate record inferred using stable isotopes, biotic record of Cretaceous global change, oceanic anoxic events, sea-level record, mechanisms for global eustatic change, ocean circulation, and the environmental and biotic consequences of large igneous provinces. This resource may be useful for developing and directing student research in related fields.
