Abigail Buchan


I am a first-year PhD student based in the School of Earth and Environment. My research is focusing on the climate of the Pliocene Epoch (~3 million years ago) to enhance the understanding of the long-term consequences of atmospheric CO2  being at or above 400ppmv. I am funded by the NERC Panorama DTP.
