Past hurricane activity reconstructed using cave deposits: Have humans increased storm risk?
FP7 Project with U.S. partner
Short name and number
The proposed research would utilise various geochemical proxies (oxygen, carbon, and trace elements) in cave calcite deposits (stalagmites) to develop extraordinarily high-resolution North Atlantic hurricane activity records for the past five hundred years, extending existing historical datasets by hundreds of years.
