Compound specific radiocarbon dating
Since June 2014Ph D student at the Max-Planck-Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena.
My doctoral research centred on investigating the fate of organic nitrogen in soil.
Variablity of climate and Asian monsoon in NE Tibetan Plateau inferred from stable isotopes of Lake Donggi Cona 2.
Development of Fatty Acid methyl esters as a proxy for compound-specific radiocarbon analysis using Tibetan lake sediments 2014 2016Ph D Research Project at MPI for Biogeochemistry, Jena.
We aim at establishing and presenting a first high-resolution radiocarbon chronology for the LPS Krems-Wachtberg, Austria (˜40 ka to ˜20 ka, Terhorst et al.
2014), in order to assess the continuity of loess accumulation. On the stratigraphic integrity of leaf-wax biomarkers in loess paleosols.
Search for compound specific radiocarbon dating:
This might help to evaluate the hypothesis that loess may not necessarily reflect arid paleoenvironments, but simply high dust accumulation rates (Zech et al., 2013).
