G @ GPS Research Initiative

Posted 1 May 2012

Groundwater @ Global Palaeoclimate Signals (G @ GPS) aims to interpret links between palaeoclimate archives and palaeogroundwater observations at continental and intercontinental scales.

The new initiative, funded by the IGCP, INQUA and UNESCO, is headed by Dioni Cendón (ANSTO).

The aims of G @ GPS will be met through:

  1. Correlation of isotopic and geochemical data from aquifers on regional and global scales
  2. Discussions about methods for the study of palaeorecharge conditions and groundwater ages
  3. Correlation of groundwater palaeosignals and palaeoclimate signals from higher resolution terrestrial records.

For further details, and information about joining the network, please see the G @ GPS newsletter.
