Abstract Long chain alkenones (LCAs) have played a central role in reconstructing paleo-sea surface temperature throughout much of the world oceans. The standard method for LCA separation and quantification utilizes gas chromatography (GC) with a non-polar column and flame ionization detection (FID). The method has remained nearly unchanged since the debut of alkenone paleothermometry over three decades ago. The conventional stationary phase used [poly(dimethylsiloxane)] is adequate for… CONTINUE READING
