We look forward to welcoming you to the our next instalment in the FBA's seminar series, entitled "Red, Orange & Green: Reading the Warning Signals in Lake Sediments" by Prof. Suzanne McGowan.
Suzanne is a Professor of Freshwater Sciences at the University of Nottingham, and a Research Associate at the British Geological Survey. She has been a member of the FBA since she was a PhD student and was recently appointed as a new FBA fellow.
“Chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments from algae and other phototrophic organisms preserved in lake sediments can give a fascinating long-term perspective of water quality and environmental changes in lakes. I have applied these approaches across a wide range of lake ecosystems to investigate, for example, carbon cycling in Arctic lakes, eutrophication impacts in sub/tropical lakes in China and the Philippines and, closer to home for the FBA, human impacts on Windermere over recent centuries. I am particularly interested in understanding patterns of temporal changes across multiple ecosystems on a landscape-scale as a way of understanding the long-term drivers of lake water quality changes.
