We are seeking a highly motivated individual with a background in Quaternary Science/Quaternary Geology to investigate Arctic climate change and its impacts on glacier behaviour. Existing paleoclimate reconstructions identify a series of
abrupt phases of rapid change during the Holocene, but their fundamental drivers remain debated. This project will address this critical knowledge gap by combining multiproxy archives from a glacierized catchment in northern Iceland`s Tröllaskagi Peninsula.
The 3-year studentship involves fieldwork in northern Iceland to complete lake sediment coring, geomorphological mapping including the use of state-of-the-art UAV photogrammetry, and sample collection for surface exposure dating of moraines.
Lake sediment cores will be analysed in detail using cutting-edge methods that include CT scanning and iTRAX XRF core scanning.
