Understanding of palaeoclimate proxies is critical for analysis of past climate and to provide data to feed into current and future climate models. This project is focussed on developing the use of terrestrial moss cores extracted from Signy Island, South Orkneys as proxies for past environmental conditions. Isotopic analysis of water sources and cellulose extracted from throughout the cores, combined with microclimate data provides information used to begin interpretation of past growing conditions.
