Climate Change and Earth-Ocean-Atmosphere Systems

Research Area: Climate modelling, variability and change

We have developed a range of chemical, isotopic and sedimentary proxies of the critical parameters needed to describe past climatic states and the processes that force change. We are using them to explore the causes and consequences of rapid climate changes in the last glacial cycle. We have increased the links between workers on marine, ice-core and terrestrial records and promoted collaboration with the climate modelling community. We have expanded our research into climate and past ocean circulation and into bio-geochemistry using novel proxies. We have recently refurbished our isotope-geochemistry laboratories and facilities.
