Research

Involved in the department's seagoing projects as chief scientist or co-chief on expeditions to the Mediterranean, Atlantic Ocean, Indo-Pacific and Nordic Seas. Main research focus is centered around paleoceanographical research (foraminifera, stable isotopes) and the shell chemistry of molluscs. Molluscs research areas include Indonesia (ENSO frequency; EKP programme), the Caribbean and Italy (geo-archeology), China (loess-gastropods) and the Netherlands (paleo-precipitation BSIK programme). Current projects are:

  • the Eastern Kalimantan Programme (cooperation with dutch universities, MGI Bandung and the Zoological Institute Bogor)
  • Coordinatorship of NORCLIM in the framework of the International Polar Year (NORCLIM is a joint Norway/Denmark/Iceland/Greenland/Canada/USA/the Netherlands programme) http://www.nwo.nl/nwohome.nsf/pages/NWOA_6SJCA7
  • the Chinese/Dutch cooperation in climate research (see homepage Maarten Prins).
