His research has also been concerned with aspects of stratigraphy and chronology, especially radiocarbon dating, during the Last Glacial-Interglacial Transition.He has published more than 150 scientific papers and other contributions, and is co-author of two Quaternary textbooks: Reconstructing Quaternary Environments (with John Lowe), (1st edition, Longman, 1984; 2nd edition, Addison-Wesley-Longman, 1997; 3rd edition, Routledge, 2015), and Late Quaternary Environmental Change: Physical and Human Perspectives (with Martin Bell), (1st edition, Longm Formal subdivision of the Holocene Series/ Epoch: A Discussion Paper by a Working Group of INTIMATE (Integration of ice-core marine and terrestrial records) and the Subcommission on Quaternary Stratigraphy (International Commission on Stratigraphy).To send this article to your Kindle, first ensure [email protected] added to your Approved Personal Document E-mail List under your Personal Document Settings on the Manage Your Content and Devices page of your Amazon account.Then enter the ‘name’ part of your Kindle email address below.

We did not find travertine samples with U-series ages indicating a growth period during relatively warm Stages 7 and 9; due to the scarcity of old travertine outcrops, these and possibly other stages cannot be excluded on the basis of presented data.

Regional influence of acid deposition and climate change in European mountain lakes assessed using diatom transfer functions. Developed by Willard Libby in the 1940s – and winning him the Nobel prize in chemistry in 1960 – the basic principle of radiocarbon dating is simple: living things exchange carbon with their environment until they die.A portion of the carbon is the radioactive isotope carbon-14.
