Personal profile

Phd Researcher Profile

Chris Millar is a PhD researcher examining the deglacial history of the extensive ice dome which covered Co. Donegal, Ireland following the last glacial maximum at ~26-25 kyr. Ice sheets have long life cycles and the best way of understanding their response to climate change is to investigate the behaviour of paleo ice sheets through their geological record. His PhD project unlocks this record through geomorphological mapping and dating deglaciation using Schmidt Hammer Exposure Dating (SHED), a technique which accurately age constrains the timing of deglaciation in granite lithologies. A high resolution suite of deglacial ages from over 50 sites across the Derryveigh & Bluestack mountain, Co. Donegal combined with the identification and mapping of deglacial geomorphological features through high-resolution satellite imagery will form the basis for further analysis to recognise the drivers and constrain the deglacial timing of extent and down-wasting of this significant source of ice.
