The key to information about recurring climate analogs and periodicities, on decadal to centennial time scales, is the measurement of proxies in terrestrial records. The accurate dating of these records is difficult, but it is also crucial to achieving reliable results. The cosmogeophysics group, founded by Giuliana Cini Castagnoli in Torino, started many(More)
A deep understanding of natural decadal variability is pivotal to discuss recently observed climate trends. Paleoclimate proxies allow reconstructing natural variations before the instrumental period. Typically, regional-scale reconstructions depend on factors like dating, multi-proxy weighting and calibration, which may lead to non-robust reconstructions.(More)
Thanks to the precise core dating and the high sedimentation rate of the drilling site (Gallipoli Terrace, Ionian Sea) we were able to measure a foraminiferal δ(18)O series covering the last 2,200 years with a time resolution shorter than 4 years. In order to support the quality of this data-set we link the δ(18)O values measured in the foraminifera shells(More)
We explore the possibility of tracing routes of dense waters toward and within the ocean abyss by the use of an extended set of observed physical and biochemical parameters. To this purpose, we employ mercury, isotopic oxygen, biopolymeric carbon and its constituents, together with indicators of microbial activity and bacterial diversity found in bottom(More)
