Interrogating trees as archives of environmental Sulphur variability

Sulphur in trees

This NERC funded collaboration between Dr. Peter Wynn (Lancaster University); Dr. Neil Loader (Swansea University) and Prof. Ian Fairchild (University of Birmingham) will investigate tree-rings as local archives of sulphur deposition over the past millennium, to extract some of the most sensitive and high resolution records of sulphur pollution sourced from industrial and volcanic emissions to the atmosphere.
