Hi, my name is Oliver and I have just begun my PhD studies with the School of Earth and Environment here at Leeds. My research will focus on producing a model of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) for Northern Europe during the Last Interglacial. This will hope to further our understanding...

The first week of September, Víctor had the opportunity to join an international group of researchers in a survey in the southern North Sea. The survey was on board the RV Simon Stevin, led by Tine Missiaen from VLIZ (Flanders Marine Institute, Belgium) as part of the North Sea consortium....

My name is Víctor Cartelle Álvarez and I have recently joined the great team of RISeR at the University of Leeds as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in offshore seismic. Prior to this position, I was a PhD student at the University of Vigo (Spain), where I have also studied a...

In July both the INQUA Congress and the PALSEA workshops were held in Dublin, Ireland.  Natasha led the delivery of the PALSEA workshop and as part of it presented the poster which Victor had done an awesome job of put together for INQUA, summarising the initial offshore seismic and borehole...

Natasha was invited to join the QUIGS (a PAGES-PMIP Working Group on Quaternary Interglacials) workshop on Warm extremes – Marine isotope stage 5e and its relevance to the future in Cambridge, 2-4th July.  Along with Alessio Rovere, also an ERC fellow working on Last Interglacial sea-level change, they did a...

On 18th June, Victor and Natasha attended the National Marine Facilities meeting for Chief Scientists at NERC in Swindon (UK).  A major component of RISeR is the offshore core collection of LIG material from the southern North Sea and this is an important step in securing ship time.  We were...

The RISeR kick off meeting was held at the University of Leeds on 12th February 2019, at the Priestley International Center for Climate.  This was the first time the whole team had met – RISeR brings together a diverse range of expertise to realise the project goals.  The original grant...
