This blog is written by Dr Richard Payne, a Lecturer at the University of York. I am a broad-ranging Environmental Scientist interested in environmental change and it’s management. My research combines modern experimental and observational studies with the palaeo-environmental record, focussing particularly on climate change and pollution. Much of my work concerns peatlands which are both the most important terrestrial carbon store by area and a valuable archive of past environmental change. This blog will cover my research and other stuff I’m interested in. As the blog expands I hope there will also be contributions from my colleagues and students.
