So what exactly does a paleoclimatologist do?
In this page and in my blog posts I intend to show what life is like for me, a paleoclimatologist, from collecting my samples, to analysing them, to writing a paper to let the world know about my science.
My work involves discovering the history of the Indonesian monsoon and how it has changed over the last few tens of thousands of years. For this I use stalagmites from caves as my raw material. Here you can trace the journey of my stalagmites, from cave to paper.
This page is a work in progress. Every time I publish a blog post on my work, I hope to link it here.
