Paula Reimer

Sr. Lecturer/ Director of 14CHRONO Centre for Climate, the Environment and Chronology
School of Geography, Archaeology and Palaeoecology
Queen’s University Belfast

Fields of interest:

  • Chronology: 14C measurement, calibration, regional offsets and marine and freshwater reservoir corrections
  • Palaeoclimate: Effect of past climate change on the ocean- atmosphere-biosphere system
  • Carbon cycle: origin, diagenesis and residence time of organic carbon compounds in
    sediments, soils, and peats
