Bärbel Hönisch

Internal Advisory Board

Bärbel is a professor at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

Her research focuses on reconstructing past changes in seawater carbonate chemistry, atmospheric carbon dioxide, and global climate; the time scales covered by her group currently range from Pleistocene glacial cycles to Paleocene hyperthermals.

One of the main tools in this work is the boron isotope proxy for past seawater pH, but her research group also validates and applies a range of other proxies for reconstructing past environmental conditions.
