Assistant professor of geology to participate in drilling of the ocean floor
Karin Goldberg, assistant professor of geology, has been invited to participate as a sedimentologist on the International Ocean Discovery Program Equatorial Atlantic Gateway Expedition (388) aboard the research vessel JOIDES Resolution.
The expedition, scheduled for summer 2020, will study the tectonic, climatic and biotic evolution of the Equatorial Atlantic Gateway at three sites on the northeastern Brazilian continental shelf. This expedition will constrain the long-term interactions between tectonics, oceanography, ocean biogeochemistry and climate, and the functioning of tropical ecosystems and climate during intervals of extreme warmth.
