S27 – Quaternary planktonic foraminifera: tool for paleoclimatic and paleoceanographic studies

Giulia Margaritelli, Fabrizio Lirer, Francisco Javier Sierro, Lucilla Capotondi, Isabel Cacho Lascorz

The paleoclimate reconstructions are essential to understand the natural variability and contribute to discriminate the human influence on climate changes. Planktonic foraminifera dominate the surface ocean from the tropic to the polar zones, and in the fossil records their tests are abundant in marine sediments, as a consequence they are ideal tools for paleoclimatic and paleoceanographic reconstruction. The distribution pattern of planktonic foraminiferal species, assemblage composition, diversity, and shell size are strongly used to analyse past climate oscillations in the Quaternary. Moreover, the planktonic foraminifera were used since more than forty years ago as one of the first paleothermometers in paleoceanographic reconstructions. Geochemical information in planktonic foraminiferal shells encompass some of the most important sources of information for the Sea Surface Temperature estimation. In this session, we invite contributions related to micropaleontological and geochemical studies carried out on Quaternary Planktonic Foraminifera.
