Dr Graham Wilson will be delivering a workshop entitled Reconstructing past environments.
This workshop introduces the fundamentals of past climate reconstruction, with a particular focus on lake sediment deposits. Dr Wilson will bring 12 microscopes which can be used by participants.
Studying past Earth system variability allows us to evaluate the rate and magnitude of current global change, to understand processes and relationships between Earth system components (ocean-atmosphere-cryosphere), and to identify system ‘tipping points’.
Dr Graham Wilson is a Senior Lecturer, Single Honours Geography Programme Leader and Department Research co-ordinator at the University of Chester
“I am a Physical Geographer with teaching and research interests in Environmental Change, specifically the analysis of diatom and stable isotopes in lake and estuarine sediment to investigate Late Quaternary climate and sea-level change.”
