4) Sea-surface conditions in the Northern North Atlantic and Arctic Seas during the Holocene based on dinocyst assemblages
This is a contribution of the Geotop team to the project "Past4Future. Climate change - Learning from the past climate” of the European Union's Seventh Framework programme. The Geotop participation to Past4Future has been supported by the Ministère du Développement économique, de l’innovation et de l’exportation (MDEIE) du Québec. Additional financial support was provided by the Fonds de Recherche du Québec Nature et Technologies (FRQNT) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
