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.
