The climates of our past provide vital clues about how the Earth's climate system works.  In my lab we use cutting edge isotopic and geochemical techniques to reconstruct ancient climates to better understanding our warming future.


Our Research

Our research is primarily focused on understanding how and why the Earth's climate system has changed over geological (and more recent) times.  The principal tool we use to do this is isotopic geochemistry and we have a particular focus on boron isotopes.

Our Publications

We have archived all the publications produced so far by the Foster Lab.  Many of these publications contain large datasets that can also be found here as can a number of papers that are in the pipe line.
