When The Ice Melts: A New Perspective On The Causes Of Quaternary Glacial Terminations

Grant number: DP110102185 | Funding period: 2011 - 2014

Abstract

The project will assemble an unprecedented palaeoclimate time series extending back to 1.2 million years ago that will allow marine and ice core records to be placed onto an absolute time scale. This will allow testing of fundamental hypotheses on why the Earth's climate shifts from glacial to interglacial states, with flow-on effects to climate models.
