Researches long term changes in climate, ecosystems, and biogeochemical cycles.

About

Past Environments research in Newcastle Physical Geography addresses questions about long term changes in climate, ecosystems, and biogeochemical cycles. Understanding these processes over long timescales is vital to predict the impact of future environmental change on our world. We study sediment records obtained from lakes, peatlands, and oceans by analysing the biological and geochemical remains within them. We work globally, with research sites including Alaska, Antarctica, Greenland, Australia, China, and Europe. Our research encompasses climate change, pollution, environmental archaeology, food web structure, and methane emissions.
