Chris explores past climates and their relevance to future change. Working across the planet (from Antarctica to the tropics and up into the Arctic), he is developing new records of past climate that extend historical weather records over millennia. A major focus of Chris’ work is communicating how science works, communicating his team’s findings from the deep field. With climate models, Chris is using these reconstructions to explore the mechanisms, timing and impact of extreme change to help better improve our understanding of future abrupt climate change in Australia and globally.
