Stratigraphy, Sedimentology and Palaeontology

Mehrdad Sardar Abadi

Mehrdad Sardar Abadi received a MSc in Sedimentary Petrology (2009, University of Tehran, Iran), and a PhD in Carbonate Sedimentology (2016, University of Liege, Belgium). He has broad interests in reconstructing paleoenvironment and paleoclimate. His first postdoc was with a team of palaeoclimatologists at the School of Geosciences, University of Oklahoma (USA). He recently joined a research project focusing on extracting paleoclimate signal across the lacustrine deposits of Lake Chalco in central Mexico using borehole geophysics.

Towards a better understanding of 500,000-years climate history in central Mexico

Towards a better understanding of 500,000-years climate history in central Mexico

  The effects of climate change on tropical regions are in parts still poorly understood, although the tropics include some of the most populated areas in the world. Now we created an age-depth model and a moisture reconstruction of the last 500,000 years from one of the oldest lakes in central Mexico, Lake Chalco. Central Mexico, because of its mild climate and fertile soil, has been continu ...[Read More]

Tracing Atmospheric dustiness in the Permo-Carboniferous of northeastern Gondwana

Cyclic Permian carbonates above Carboniferous contain dust deposits, Central Alborz Mountains (Iran)

This blog summarizes two recent articles about dust in the Paleozoic. Planet Earth is presently undergoing a profound climatic turnover. Improved understanding of both the mechanisms contributing to the present climate change and its consequences for the biosphere, including human society, will not only provide the knowledge required to cope with its effects, but may also shed light on the forces ...[Read More]
