    Episode 10: Jaqueline Ferreira

    Episode 10: Jaqueline Ferreira

    A milestone reached: the tenth CycloPod on www.cyclostratigraphy.org already. This month, we have Jaqueline Ferreira from São Paolo (Brazil) telling us about surprising responses of Brazilian rainfall and ecosystems to astronomical forcing. This podcast is based on her 2022 Quaternary Science Reviews paper. The Intro music of this podcast is again an excerpt of a piece based on the North Atlantic Oscillation from the "Aphrodite's Dew" book and CD project by Arvid Tomayko and Sandro Montanari.

    Episode 9: Arne Ulfers

    Episode 9: Arne Ulfers

    Our ninth CycloPod on www.cyclostratigraphy.org has Arne Ulfers as our guest (LIAG, Hannover, Germany). Half-precession cycles usually have a low-latitude origin, but can also be observed outside of the tropics. In his 2022 Quaternary Science Reviews paper, Arne figures out how far north half-precession signatures can be distinguished. Spoiler Alert: At Lake Ohrid (North-Macedonia / Albania), they are clearly expressed in lacustrine sediments of the last 1 million years. The Intro music of this podcast is again an excerpt of a piece based on the North Atlantic Oscillation from the "Aphrodite's Dew" book and CD project by Arvid Tomayko and Sandro Montanari.

    Episode 8: Simin Jin

    Podcast number 8 on www.cyclostratigraphy.org is by Simin Jin (China University of Geosciences Wuhan). In her 2022 Earth and Planetary Science Letters paper, Simin investigates the most expanded Paleocene - Eocene Thermal Maximum section known to date: a siliciclastic turbidite sequence from the North Sea! The Intro music of this podcast is again an excerpt of a piece based on the North Atlantic Oscillation from the "Aphrodite's Dew" book and CD project by Arvid Tomayko and Sandro Montanari.

    Episode 7: Dr. Clara Bolton & Boris-Theofanis Karatsolis

    Episode 7: Dr. Clara Bolton & Boris-Theofanis Karatsolis

    The seventh podcast on www.cyclostratigraphy.org is the first double-interview! Two new papers came out over the last couple of weeks, discussing the response of ocean productivity to astronomical forcing: Clara Bolton and her colleagues focus on the Pleistocene in Nature, whereas Boris Karatsolis and his team deal with the Mio-Pliocene biogenic bloom (Nature Communications). Their results seem contradicting at first, but this episode of CycloPod reveals that these two geologic time windows have more in common than expected. The Intro music of this podcast is again an excerpt of a piece based on the North Atlantic Oscillation from the "Aphrodite's Dew" book and CD project by Arvid Tomayko and Sandro Montanari.

    Episode 6: Margriet Lantink

    Episode 6: Margriet Lantink

    The sixth podcast on www.cyclostratigraphy.org is by Margriet Lantink. In her 2019 Nature Geoscience paper, Margriet demonstrated a climate control on Banded Iron Formations from South Africa. In this podcast, she elucidates how cyclostratigraphy and radio-isotopic dating were both essential in coming to her interpretation. She also shares her vision on what's next in researching the early days of Planet Earth. The Intro music of this podcast is again an excerpt of a piece based on the North Atlantic Oscillation from the "Aphrodite's Dew" book and CD project by Arvid Tomayko and Sandro Montanari.

    Episode 5: Dr. Anna Joy Drury

    Episode 5: Dr. Anna Joy Drury

    The fifth podcast on www.cyclostratigraphy.org is by Anna Joy Drury. She talks about a 30 million year long carbonate content and stable isotope record that she compiled for an ocean drilling site on Walvis Ridge, in the South-East Atlantic Ocean. In this podcast, Anna Joy discusses how climate and carbon cycle have been responding to astronomical frocing throughout the late Cenozoic. This discussion is based on scientific results, recently published in Climate of the Past. They also discuss how CODD, or Code for Ocean Drilling Data (Wilkens et al., 2017), was used to construct composite core images of the sedimentary sequence. The Intro music of this podcast is again an excerpt of a piece based on the North Atlantic Oscillation from the "Aphrodite's Dew" book and CD project by Arvid Tomayko and Sandro Montanari.
