next week, Francien Peterse (Geological Institute, ETH Zürich) will give a talk about
Orbital pacing of air temperature and monsoon precipitation in East Asia over the past 130,000 years.
Francien Peterse received her PhD degree in organic biogeochemistry from the
Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ)/Utrecht University and
is currently working as a postdoctoral fellow at the Geological Institute of
ETH in Zürich. The major focus of her research is on the global carbon
cycle, specifically the transport of organic carbon from land to sea, using
molecular biomarkers. Her current research efforts also lie at the
application of organic proxies to reconstruct past continental climate
change and monsoon dynamics in East Asia.
