Abstract: Feasibility study of Eocene to Pliocene palynological reconstruction of the
Antarctic Peninsula margin climate evolution
Project Summary

Intellectual merit
Numerous lines of geological evidence show that major changes in the global
climate system occurred during the Cenozoic, but the triggering mechanisms
behind widespread Antarctic glaciations and ... View entire text

MICROSCOPES Ancillary Description
Quality This was a feasibility study to test the potential recovery of palynomorphs in
the area of interest for the SHALDRIL project.

For this project, piston core samples were evaluated. The recovery exceeded
our expectations and a diverse palynomorph assemblage was recovered (diverse
both in age and in term of environmental significance).
Access Constraints The staff at the Antarctic Research Facility in Florida was extremely helpful
and provided all data on time.
Use Constraints All data are currently being published and will be accessible broadly soon.
