Coring fieldtrip to Wallywash Great Pond

Our most recent coring expedition to investigate long-term rainfall patterns in Jamaica


Here are some photos from our most recent trip to Wallywash Great Pond, St Elizabeth. Analysis of sediments recovered from this lake will provide us with an understanding of changing natural rainfall and drought patterns in Jamaica over the last 1000 years. This collaborative project forms part of a NERC-funded Caribbean-wide research project involving partners from the University of the West Indies in Jamaica and the Universities of London, Nottingham and Cambridge in the UK.

Making the most out of Caribbean Environments

Caribbean Environments – using Facebook and Twitter


Our Facebook and Twitter pages have been designed as a hub for posting topical research news, related news articles and new publications to those interested in environmental and climate change with a focus on the Caribbean Region.

In addition, it is to serve as a valuable resource for students on our courses where postings, resources and discussions will relate and assist with your studies.

We hope you find Caribbean Environments interesting and look forward to your contributions and interactions through the different networks.
