Characterisation and paleoclimatic signals within tephric loess deposits aged between c. 33 to 9.5 cal ka in the Rotorua area, northern New Zealand Lanigan, Kerri Miriam (University of Waikato, 2012)I studied tephric loess deposits aged between c. 33 and 9.5 cal ka in the Rotorua region, north-east central North Island. I produced a stratigraphic framework for the loess deposits and characterised them using a range ...
Lowe, David J.; Tonkin, Philip J.; Palmer, Jonathan G.; Lanigan, Kerri Miriam; Palmer, Alan S. (Geoscience Society of New Zealand with GNS Science, 2015)Dust whipped up and deposited by wind forms sheets of loess, which drape over the land. These loess deposits and the soils formed within them yield insights into past climatic and environmental change.
Where geology meets pedology: Late Quaternary tephras, loess, and paleosols in the Mamaku Plateau and Lake Rerewhakaaitu areas Lowe, David J.; Lanigan, Kerri Miriam; Palmer, David John (Geoscience Society of New Zealand, 2012)On this trip we focus on tephrostratigraphy and soil stratigraphy together with aspects of palaeoenvironmental reconstruction over long and short time-spans. We will examine the relationship between the deposition of tephras ...
