The Group

Main content


The Climate Geology research group focuses on reconstructing the Earth’s past climate evolution, and the natural processes responsible for causing variations in the Earth’s climate such as changes in atmospheric CO2 and the carbon cycle. To answer these questions we use both the geochemistry and micropaleontology of sedimentary deposits from land (paleosols, lakes, speleothems) and from the seafloor.  

More about our research 


The group maintains state of the art analytical laboratories in stable isotope geochemistry, clumped isotope geochemistry, microscopy for micropaleontology and affiliated digital image analysis, trace element analysis in sediments, microfossil separation, and will soon implement facilities for laboratory culture of marine algae.
