Field Research for WP1 Begins
(4 August 2011)
Researchers from WP1 of the Tipping Points project, 'Rapid Neo-glacial transitions in the North Atlantic', begin their field research for the project.
They are embarking on a quest to collect artefacts (such as non-biting midges and pollen grains) that will be used to reconstruct past temperature records in order to reveal what the climate was like thousands of years ago. This is the first trip that researchers will make to recover samples for the project.
A post about their field work is on the Tipping Points blog.
