G. Unger Vetlesen Foundation funds purchase of state-of-the-art equipment for UM's Rosenstiel School
Date:4/23/2009

onally recognized Stable Isotope Laboratory. Currently under the direction of Dr. Peter K. Swart, professor and chair of the School's Marine Geology and Geophysics division, the group studies isotopes and trace elements on a global scale, including extensive research in the Florida Everglades and Florida Bay, the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Saudi Arabia, Africa and Europe.

Because of the Rosenstiel School's interdisciplinary curriculum, the ICP-MS will be applicable to a number of the School's projects. Among the scientific issues faculty members and students will be able to assess: geochemical climate "proxy indicators" from its archives (e.g., corals, mollusks, sclerosponges, and cave mineral deposits); life history of extinct animals via geochemical analyses of fish otoliths; changes in sedimentary rocks, such as carbonates and sandstones; construction and composition of centuries-old stromatolites some of Earth's oldest living fossils; concentrations of iron and other trace elements in seawater; and how organisms utilize these elements.

The Rosenstiel School is working with the National Climatic Data Center on developing Climate Data Records (CDRs). CDRs are long term, validated information that facilitates understanding of variations in the Earth's environment.
