    Description

    Understanding how the Australian sector has responded to past changes in global climate is critical for developing robust policies aimed at mitigating the impact of future climate change. Multi-proxy analyses of climate proxy data are a powerful way of reconstructing past climate change. This project will develop high resolution multi-proxy climate data for western Tasmania, a region critically placed to track changes in the Southern Hemisphere Westerly Winds, the primary source of rainfall in southern Australia. Application and testing of cutting-edge methods of climate reconstruction will enable a comprehensive reconstruction of Australian climate change over the last 2000 years and will significantly advance Australian climate research.
