New project funded

In this follow-up project we plan to extend the Devils Hole record to 800,000 years. This will provide the first palaeoclimate record of the last eight glacial-interglacial cycles from a terrestrial archive outside Antarctica. In addition, we will determine the height of the palaeo-water table in order to examine past moisture changes in this modern-day desert region. The resulting data will represent a significant advancement in the understanding of this unique region’s climatic history and the underpinning forcings.
