Enhanced Mediterranean water cycle explains increased humidity during MIS 3 in North Africa (2019)
Journal Article
Rogerson, M., Dublyansky, Y., Hoffman, D. L., Luetscher, M., Töchterle, P., & Spötl, C. (2019). Enhanced Mediterranean water cycle explains increased humidity during MIS 3 in North Africa. Climate of the Past, 15, 1757–1769. https://doi.org/10.5194/cp-2018-134

We report a new fluid inclusion dataset from Northeast Libyan speleothem SC-06-01, which is the largest speleothem fluid inclusion dataset for North Africa to date. The stalagmite was sampled in Susah cave, a low altitude coastal site, in Cyrenaica,... Read More

Natural fracture propping and earthquake-induced oil migration in fractured basement reservoirs (2019)
Journal Article
Holdsworth, R. E., McCaffrey, K. J. W., Dempsey, E., Roberts, N. M. W., Hardman, K., Morton, A., …Robertson, A. (2019). Natural fracture propping and earthquake-induced oil migration in fractured basement reservoirs. Geology, 47(8), 700-704. https://doi.org/10.1130/G46280.1

The geological processes that create fluid storage capacity and connectivity in global fractured basement reservoirs are poorly understood compared to conventional hydrocarbon plays. Hosting potentially multi-billion barrels of oil, the upfaulted P... Read More

Handheld portable FTIR spectroscopy for the triage of micro and meso sized plastics in the marine environment incorporating an accelerated weathering study and an aging estimation (2019)
Journal Article
McCumskay, R., Tang, P. L., Mckumskay, R., Rogerson, M., Waller, C., & Forster, R. (2019). Handheld portable FTIR spectroscopy for the triage of micro and meso sized plastics in the marine environment incorporating an accelerated weathering study and an aging estimation. Spectroscopy, 34(2), 54-60

Debris in the marine environment can be either natural, such as floating vegetation or volcanic ash deposits, or man-made. The man-made human sources cover the whole gamut of material types, from sewage, glass, mineral, fabric and, of increasing conc... Read More
