topographic evolution in Antarctica is vital to accurately reconstruct past
glaciers, their sensitivity to climate change, and their contribution to sea
level. I will be travelling to the Antarctic Peninsula to collect samples that I
can use to measure the long-term pattern and physical processes of glacial

Vertebrate palaeontology is the study of the fossil record of organisms with a backbone (Chordates). Vertebrate groups range from the first marine fish through the earliest air-breathing amphibians through to fully terrestrial reptiles and mammals.
A detailed examination of ancient vertebrate fossils can give us an insight to patterns of evolution, ecology and ontogeny as well as providing information through isotopic analysis of recent changes in climate.
