Journal Article
Chambers, F. M., Webb, J. C., & Thom, T. (in press). Evidence for the Little Ice Age in upland northwestern Europe: multiproxy climate data from three blanket mires in northern England. Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecology,

The Little Ice Age (LIA) is a well-recognised palaeoclimatic phenomenon, although its causes, duration and severity have been matters of debate and dispute. Data from a wide range of archives have been used to infer climate variability before, during...

© 2015 Elsevier Ltd and INQUA In a recent discussion of research priorities for palaeoecology, it was suggested that palaeoecological data can be applied and used to inform nature conservation practice. The present study exemplifies this approach and... Read More about Application of palaeoecology for peatland conservation at Mossdale Moor, UK.

Centennial-scale climate change in Ireland during the Holocene (2013)
Journal Article
Swindles, G. T., Lawson, I. T., Matthews, I. P., Blaauw, M., Daley, T. J., Charman, D. J., …Armit, I. (2013). Centennial-scale climate change in Ireland during the Holocene. Earth-Science Reviews, 126, 300-320. doi:10.1016/j.earscirev.2013.08.012

We examine mid- to late Holocene centennial-scale climate variability in Ireland using proxy data from peatlands, lakes and a speleothem. A high degree of between-record variability is apparent in the proxy data and significant chronological uncertai... Read More about Centennial-scale climate change in Ireland during the Holocene.
