Abstract

To understand seasonal climatic variability in the North East Atlantic, a fortnightly resolution marine climate record from 1353–2006 was constructed for shallow inshore waters on the west coast of Scotland using red coralline algae. A core was collected in January 2007 by N Kamenos using SCUBA and the coralline algae from within that core analysed using an electron microprobe.
