Project Details

Project Description

Investigations of past climate and environmental changes are essential for improved understanding of natural
climate variability and future climate change. Central to such investigations is access to the most advanced
analytical techniques. The new ITRAX XRF Core Scanner will provide much-needed high-resolution physical
and geochemical measurements from an extensive suite of environmental archives, greatly enhancing
Australia's capacity to produce world-class palaeoclimate data. Research results will make important
contributions to climate models, thus improving future climate predictions.
