Dinocysts and autocorrelation: Guiot and de Vernal (2011) line by line

I didn’t intend to write about Guiot and de Vernal (2011) as I have already published a comment on this paper, but new papers on Arctic sea-ice reconstructions are dismissing my work on transfer functions and citing Guiot and de Vernal (2011) as … Continue reading

How good are dinocyst-inferred sea-ice reconstructions?

Dinocysts, the resting stage of dinoflagellates, have been used to reconstruct a range of palaeoceanographic variables, including summer and winter sea surface temperature (SST) and salinity, productivity and sea ice using transfer functions. I became interested in dinocysts as proxies … Continue reading
