Initial Research Proposal

My initial research proposal for my summer 2020 project where I will be collecting climate related data from a sediment core taken from the Mozambique Channel.

  A few changes have been made to the project since my initial research proposal was developed. My research question is now ´Can oceanic changes in the Mozambique Channel provide evidence for the occurrence of the Little Ice Age?'. I will be doing this by studying oxygen and carbon isotopes during the time of the Little Ice Age to see if they provide evidence for its still fairly debated occurrence.

I am interested in climate change and how it will affect our environment, in particular, the effects it will have on our oceans. In the future I hope to model and predict the changes that climate change will cause to aid the adaptation and mitigation required to combat this global problem. Currently, I am in my first year of my undergraduate degree studying Geoscience.
