Multiproxy archives of late Holocene climate variability
Multiproxy archives of late Holocene climate variability from ombrotrophic peatlands in eastern North America.
We are developing new proxies based biomarker ratios and compound specific isotope ratios of lipids as well as cellulose oxygen isotope ratios to quantitatively reconstruct past hydrological changes from ombrotrophic peatlands.
