Microfossils, a key to unravel cold-water carbonate mound evolution through time: Evidence from the eastern alboran sea

Stalder, Claudio ; Vertino, Agostina ; Rosso, Antonietta ; Rüggeberg, Andres ; Pirkenseer, Claudius ; Spangenberg, Jorge E. ; Spezzaferri, Silvia ; Camozzi, Osvaldo ; Rappo, Sacha ; Hajdas, Irka

In: PLoS ONE, 2015, vol. 10, no. 10, p. e0140223

Cold-water coral (CWC) ecosystems occur worldwide and play a major role in the ocean's carbonate budget and atmospheric CO2 balance since the Danian (~65 m.y. ago). However their temporal and spatial evolution against climatic and oceanographic variability is still unclear. For the first time, we combine the main macrofaunal components of a sediment core from a CWC mound of the Melilla Mounds...

Li/Mg systematics in scleractinian corals: Calibration of the thermometer

Montagna, Paolo ; McCulloch, Malcolm ; Douville, Eric ; Correa, Matthias López ; Trotter, Julie ; Rodolfo-Metalpa, Riccardo ; Dissard, Delphine ; Ferrier-Pagès, Christine ; Frank, Norbert ; Freiwald, André ; Goldstein, Steve ; Mazzoli, Claudio ; Reynaud, Stephanie ; Rüggeberg, Andres ; Russo, Simone ; Taviani, Marco

In: Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, 2014, vol. 132, p. 288–310

We show that the Li/Mg systematics of a large suite of aragonitic coral skeletons, representing a wide range of species inhabiting disparate environments, provides a robust proxy for ambient seawater temperature. The corals encompass both zooxanthellate and azooxanthellate species (Acropora sp., Porites sp., Cladocora caespitosa, Lophelia pertusa, Madrepora...

Carbonate mounds: from paradox to world heritage

Henriet, J.P. ; Hamoumi, N. ; Silva, A.C. Da ; Foubert, Anneleen ; Lauridsen, B.W. ; Rüggeberg, Andres ; Rooij, D. Van

In: Marine Geology, 2014, vol. 352, p. 89–110

The recent marine carbonate world comprises two major compartments: (1) the surface domain of the photozoan carbonates, confined in space by water depth and by the penetration of light, and (2) a deep domain, where heterozoan mound-builder guilds directly forage on fluxes of nutrients, which primarily percolate from the photic zone and/or are generated by in situ benthic processes. Locally, giant...

Environmental boundary conditions of cold-water coral mound growth over the last 3 million years in the Porcupine Seabight, Northeast Atlantic

Raddatz, Jacek ; Rüggeberg, Andres ; Liebetrau, Volker ; Foubert, Anneleen ; Hathorne, Ed C. ; Fietzke, Jan ; Eisenhauer, Anton ; Dullo, Wolf-Christian

In: Deep Sea Research Part II: Topical Studies in Oceanography, 2014, vol. 99, p. 227–236

IODP Expedition 307 made it for the first time possible to investigate the entire body of a cold-water coral carbonate mound. Here we provide new insights into the long-term history of Challenger Mound on the European continental margin off Ireland. This study is based on age determinations (230Th/U, 87Sr/86Sr) and geochemical signals (Mg/Li and Ba/Ca) measured in the scleractinian cold-water...

Late Weichselian deglaciation and early Holocene development of a cold-water coral reef along the Lopphavet shelf (Northern Norway) recorded by benthic foraminifera and ostracoda

Stalder, Claudio ; Spezzaferri, Silvia ; Rüggeberg, Andres ; Pirkenseer, Claudius ; Gennari, Giordana

In: Deep Sea Research Part II: Topical Studies in Oceanography, 2014, vol. 99, p. 249–269

Cold-water coral (CWC) settlement in northern Norway is strongly related to the outlet-glaciers of the Fennoscandian Ice-sheet, and dating of known CWC structures show clearly post-glacial ages. Two gravity cores (POS391 559/2,277 cm long and POS391 559/3,282 cm long) were recovered on a CWC reef in the area of Lopphavet, northern Norway. Detailed investigations on lithology (sediment structures...

Benthic foraminifer assemblages from norwegian cold-Water coral reefs

Spezzaferri, Silvia ; Rüggeberg, Andres ; Stalder, Claudio ; Margreth, Stephan

In: Journal of Foraminiferal Research, 2013, vol. 43, no. 1, p. 21-39

Quantitative investigations on the total (living + dead) benthic foraminiferal assemblages were performed on 32 surface-sediment samples (0–2 cm, .63-mm size fraction) from water depths ranging from 110–600 m (‘‘on-reef’’) to .2000 m (‘‘off-reef’’) in the Oslo Fjord (Skagerrak Basin), the mid-Norwegian slope (Sula, Røst, and Trænadjupet reefs), and the northern coral-reef...

Paleoenvironmental reconstruction of Challenger Mound initiation in the Porcupine Seabight, NE Atlantic

Raddatz, Jacek ; Rüggeberg, Andres ; Margreth, Stephan ; Dullo, Wolf-Christian ; IODP Expedition 307 Scientific Party

In: Marine Geology, 2011, vol. 282, no. 1-2, p. 79-90

The understanding of the paleoenvironment during initiation and early development of deep cold-water coral carbonate mounds in the NE Atlantic is currently a focus of international research. The Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) Expedition 307 drilled the 155 m high Challenger Mound in the Porcupine Seabight (SW off Ireland) in order to investigate for the first time sediments from the...
