Climate Change Honour for Young Scientist
Story supplied by LU Press Office
A Lancaster University Geographer has been invited to attend a prestigious Climate Change workshop in Sweden.
Dr Sarah Watkins, a postdoctoral research assistant in the Geography Department's internationally-known Centre for Environmental Magnetism & Palaeomagnetism, has been invited to attend by the British Council, which is sponsoring the event.
"Climate Change: a multi-dimensional challenge" will take place at the University of Lund, Sweden. The workshop aims to bring together promising young post-doctoral scientists from the UK, Sweden and Denmark, who work with climate models.
Around 25-30 young scientists will take part in the event and Dr Watkins is one of only ten to be invited from the UK. Dr Watkins' recent work has been on identifying what happened to the North Atlantic circulation pattern during the last glaciation, using magnetic measurements to identify iceberg-rafted debris in sediments of the ocean floor and modelling to reconstruct atmospheric and oceanic conditions, and resultant surface ocean currents.
