Project: CLIP: Clumped Isotope Thermometry as a New Tool for Transforming Paleo-oceanography
Period: 2015-2019
Department: Department of Earth Science


Dr. Nele Meckler focuses on reconstructing past climates using innovative techniques on geological materials, such as marine shells preserved in ocean sediments. Following studies in geo-ecology at the University of Bayreuth, Anna Nele Meckler, continued her scientific career with a doctorate in paleo-oceanography obtained from ETH Zurich in 2006. This was followed by a postdoctorate at California Institute of Technology. Returning to Zurich, she published her results in prestigious scientific journals. In 2014, she obtained both a fellowship from the foundation and a Starting Grant from the European Research Council to launch her own research group at the Department of Earth Science at the University of Bergen. Here she continues her work on the reconstruction of the climate in periods with high greenhouse gas concentrations in order to better predict future climate change.
