Climate change. Geology of Britain. Peat cores are used to reconstruct the accumulation of peat, through analysis of sample slices taken at intervals down a core. In ombrotrophic peat bogs, for which accumulated material is derived from the breakdown of plants, there is no mineral source of natural radioactivity within the layers of peat. Where the peat has not been disturbed by erosion, such as from rivers or human activity, it can accumulate a continuous record of atmospheric deposition of minerals to the land surface.
In order to make this archive relevant to the history of landscape evolution and records of human activity, it is important that the layers of peat can be dated. The age-dating provides a chronological context to the other measurements, such as organic markers or chemical pollutants.

Peatlands are globally significant carbon reservoirs, and also comprise rich archives of past climatic and environmental change and carbon flux. This issue of PAGES news spotlights recent applications of peatland archives relevant to understanding the past, present and future of Earth. This composite image shows components of peatlands at varying scales; an aerial photo of an Alaskan peatland, a New York peatland at ground-level, an excavated Argentinean peat section, a close up of a Sphagnum moss peatland surface, and a photomicrograph of Sphagnum leaf cells.

Alan Mix, a Professor at the College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences, Oregon State University, is a paleoceanographer with a broad background spanning stable isotope geochemistry, micropaleontology and marine geology, reconstructing hydrographic conditions and global-scale circulation changes on orbital and millennial timescales. He has a wide range of experience in Quaternary research and paleoclimatic reconstructions, and has worked in diverse environments from Greenland to China.
His central area of expertise is in eolian deposits loess and the associated climatic and environmental conditions. Furthermore, he has done a lot for the international paleocommunity, as former vice president of INQUA, cofounder and co-chief-editor of the openaccess journal Climate of the Past, and as current president of the Climate division of the EGU. Chris’s research interests are varied, which has led to his substantial contributions to a range of areas including dating techniques, isotopic studies, archeology, climate science, fire and tree ring analysis.
This WG will focus on climate evolution and abrupt climate changes over the last 21 ka. PAGES networking online PAGES is now on Facebook and invites everyone to join or become a “fan” in Facebook jargon to receive real-time alerts and updates on science findings, events, jobs and other news relevant to paleoresearch.

Radionuclides in peat bogs and energy peat. The study was aimed at improving the general view on radionuclides contents in energy peat produced in Finland. The annual harvest of fuel peat in was studied extensively. Also thirteen peat bogs used for peat production and one bog in natural condition were analysed for vertical distributions of several radionuclides. These distributions demonstrate the future change in radioactivity of energy peat.

This work is due to be completed early in Work continues on revising the regional glacial stratigraphy of Buchan, Caithness and Orkney, and to assess whether or not the Fennoscandian ice sheet crossed the Northern Isles. We are now applying that technique to the last glaciation of the Outer Hebrides. The work has received wide attention and demonstrated that storm waves on deep water coasts can reach as high as 50 m a.
Recent work has focused on using boulder size as a proxy for estimating storm wave current velocities on shore platforms. A new thread is to model the impact of storm waves on the amazing sea caves on Shetland. Scotland is an excellent location in which to study how rapidly shore platforms are lowered through erosion because its shorelines provide examples of mixed rock types subject to variable wave energy and different rates of isostatic uplift.
Most estimates of erosion rates come from short-term studies, but this new work promises to provide down-wearing rates over periods of ka. Future work will examine inheritance of bedrock forms on coasts in Scotland, comparing field evidence to the duration of shoreline occupancy inferred from models of local sea level change. The ice divide zone in northern Sweden and northern Finland offers many opportunities to study the variable impact of glacial erosion, long-term development of shield landscapes and the significance and age of deep weathering episodes.
This work has great promise for improving our understanding of the development of landforms on the shield areas of the Northern Hemisphere. New work with Pertti Sarala of GTK explores how till geochemistry links to glacial erosion and transport. With Johan Kleman, we have challenged the applicability of the glacial buzzsaw hypothesis to glaciated passive margins. The INK research facility in the Peloponnese provides exciting possibilities to explore landform inheritance in terrain with rapid tectonic movements.

Uranium uptake history, open-system behaviour and uranium-series ages of fossil Tridacna gigas from Huon Peninsula, Papua New Guinea. Ayling, Bridget F. Molluscs incorporate negligible uranium into their skeleton while they are living, with any uranium uptake occurring post-mortem. As such, closed-system U- series dating of molluscs is unlikely to provide reliable age constraints for marine deposits.
