Yesterday the Lamont-Doherty Summer Interns presented their summer research projects during a poster session in Comer. We were fortunate to have two interns working with the McManus Lab Group this summer, Sarah McGrath from The College of Wooster and Danielle Schimmenti from Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and and Atmospheric Science.
Over the last 10 weeks Sarah and I have worked together on a project evaluating two chromotypes of the planktonic foraminifera G. ruber using geochemical techniques. The forams were analyzed for stable oxygen and carbon isotopes, radiocarbon ages and trace element ratios. Click here for more information on our project.
