Research Project: Testing the terrestrial response to Thermohaline Convection (THC) driven Holocene climate events around the Atlantic seaboard. 

Past terrestrial responses to climate-ocean interactions in the North Atlantic region are a critical research priority because they show how changes in key aspects of climate that will be affected by future global warming, such as ice sheet volume and ocean circulation, may be transmitted to phenomena of direct socio-economic importance, such as the atmospheric water balance and soil moisture availability. 

Although we are beginning to understand the nature and magnitude of changes in the circulation of the North Atlantic over the Holocene, terrestrial responses to these events are still poorly understood in terms of timing, magnitude and spatial pattern. This project will generate and test hypotheses to explain the processes of change and to understand the strength of relationships between oceanic and terrestrial climate change.
