Pioneering research on climate reconstruction

  • April 20, 2021

Geologist Niels de Winter, researcher at the VUB research group AMGC (Analytical, Environmental and Geo-Chemistry) and Utrecht University was nominated for the title New Scientist Science Talent 2021. He is also laureate in the EOS Pipette 2021.

De Winter on his research: “In my research, I am developing techniques to study climate changes precisely at a seasonal scale. For these reconstructions, I use chemical and microscopic analyses of fossil shells. They record the conditions of their environment, like the rings of a tree. I also grow live cockles, oysters and mussels to better understand shell growth. So my research lies at the interface of biology, geology and chemistry."
