Dr William Marshall

Lecturer in Physical Geography

School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (Faculty of Science & Engineering)

Role

Lecturer

Qualifications

BSc Earth Science (Hon), MRES Global Change, PhD Geography

Professional membership

 

Royal Geographical Society and Quaternary Research Association

Teaching interests

Quaternary environmental change with a specialism in sea-level studies, associated analytical methodologies and fieldwork.

Research interests

 

Quaternary geochronologies, geochemistry and recent sea-level change.

My current research focuses on developing new and refining existing dating methods for late Holocene sea-level reconstructions. As a means of dating carbon-poor salt-marsh sediments we are investigating alternatives to 14C analysis including the use of stable lead isotopes histories, luminescence dating and palaeomagnetic dating.
