The project will convene a workshop to study sediments from the Soledad Basin near Baja California to better understand the impacts of climate change on: fish populations in the Northern Pacific; drought in the US and Mexico; and oxygen levels along the western margin of North America.
OUTCOMES: Funding received and the workshop was held. Funding was also allowed to be used to start analyzing cores. Most data from cores could be transferred, but one new core was required. Confirmed that dark intervals are most likely due to stronger sulfate reduction/formation of iron sulfides.
