As a paleoceanographer, Jim Wright studies the ocean’s role in past climate changes using stable isotope reconstructions. Of particular interest are the effects of freshwater on North Atlantic deep-water circulation over the past 20,000 years and the influence of tectonic changes over the past 35 million years. Jim also works on reconstructing past sea level using corals and past pCO2 variations using stable isotopes in paleosols.
