reliably identified and correlated, may provide
important isochronous markers that can help to test the age and degree
of synchroneity of abrupt climatic events. This application of
tephra research is fast becoming a staple tool in palaeoclimate
research, with RHOXTOR members contributing to this development through
NERC-funded projects such as ‘RAPID’ and ‘RESET’, while new research
is being developed in Patagonia with colleagues in Southampton.
