Award winner

D.P. Mattey


Royal Holloway, University of London

Value £42,037

Speleothem records of monsoon intensity: evaluating proxy fidelity via cave process monitoring in the Shillong plateau, NE India

This project intends to collect drip water and carbonate formations from caves in the hub of the Indian summer monsoon to investigate the causes of this extreme weather condition. Professor Mattey's team will provide the first detailed study of its kind, capturing data in a rain-soil-limestone tropical environment.
