The impact of continental break-up on the global carbon cycle

Project Rationale. The rupture of continents and the formation of new ocean basins are perhaps the most dramatic phenomena in global tectonics but these processes are rarely shown in text book cartoons of the plate tectonic and biogeochemical cycles (e.g., Kelemen & Manning, 2015). Read more

Resolving Antarctic meltwater events in Southern Ocean marine sediments and exploring their significance using climate models

Project Rationale. The principal aim of this project is to better understand the role of the Antarctic ice sheet in global sea level and rapid climate change by reconstructing Antarctic glacial discharge and modelling the impact of these freshwater fluxes on ocean circulation and climate.

QUADRAT DTP: An integrated multi-proxy approach to the late Pleistocene landscapes and environments of Ireland and Scotland, and the potentials for human and faunal recolonizations at the end of the Last Ice Age

Over the last decade, archaeological research in both Scotland and Ireland has begun to overturn the notion that these regions at the extreme edge of north-west Europe were uninhabited (and uninhabitable) by humans – and numerous large mammalian species – in the Late Pleistocene. Read more

How has the tropical Pacific climate changed in the past?

Project Rationale. Understanding climate change in the tropical Pacific and specifically the region of convective rainfall known as the South Pacific Convergence Zone (SPCZ), is vital for the millions of people who live in island archipelagos (Brown et al., 2020; Sear et al., 2020). Read more
