Palaeoclimate and Climate Systems
The course covers the response of the ocean climate system to various types of forcing, such as changing greenhouse gas concentrations or ocean circulation patterns. Current research projects range across a wide variety of timescales. For example, at one end of the scale we are analysing the causes and consequences of rapid climate change since the last ice age; at the other extreme we are investigating the reasons for the long-term global cooling since the age of the dinosaurs. Major research themes include Cenozoic global climate change, thermohaline circulation, Antarctic sea ice and marine environments, and marine microfossils.
A minimum 2.1 Honours degree or equivalent is required in Earth, ocean and planetary sciences, chemistry and physics.
