Abrupt Climate Change in Ireland: Redefining our climate future through a lens of high-resolution glacial reconstruction

Dec 08 2020 Posted: 17:18 CST

Gordon Bromley is part of a new project led by former NUIG Geography postdoc, Maggie Jackson (TCD), that has been funded by Geological Survey Ireland (Short Call 2020 programme) to establish a high-resolution record of cryospheric change in the Wicklow Mountains during the last glacial-interglacial transition (or ‘termination’). This project, titled ‘Abrupt Climate Change in Ireland: Redefining our climate future through a lens of high-resolution glacial reconstruction’, will employ cosmogenic-nuclide dating of glacial deposits (to be conducted at NUIG and UMaine) and snowline reconstruction to quantify past abrupt climate shifts, providing data that, ultimately, will be used as targets for model simulations of Ireland’s future climate.
