The Palaeoenvironments Group is a collection of research scientists that specialise in palaeoenvironmental reconstruction on times scales that range from thousands to millions of years. The research encompasses both marine and terrestrial environments.
We investigate cave precipitates, lake sediments, corals and reef sediments, and of course deep marine sediments to construct records of past environmental change. We have subgroups that look at sea level change in the past, paleotemperature change, as well as changes to the carbonate chemistry of the ocean. We employ a diverse range of proxies that can be applied to both marine and terrestrial systems and have an array of cutting edge laboratories in which to make the measurements.
