Using glacier models to reconstruct climate change over the last 13,000 years

Instrumental  weather  data  in New  Zealand  extend  back  to  about  1860 AD,  leaving  great uncertainties  about longer ­term  natural  climate  variability.

Glaciers exhibit  one  of  the  clearest  and  most direct  responses  to  climate  change  and  past glacier  extents  afford  an opportunity  to decipher  paleoclimate.  Now  that  the accuracy  and  precision  of  moraine chronologies  has  improved  through advances  in surface  exposure  dating (SED) techniques,  multi­proxy  and  global  climate comparisons  have  become  more refined. Interhemispheric  climate  event  relationships  are valuable  when  looking  for  causes  or triggers  of  climate change; however, the interpreted temperature changes from glacier fluctuations are generally qualitative rather than quantitative. Please see attached PhD research proposal for more details.
