In paleoclimate projects he and his collaborators found amazing teleconnections between climate fluctuations in the tropics and those recorded in arctic and Antarctic ice caps."While research is usually planned, proposal-driven and budgeted accordingly, the instances where something totally unexpected but potentially important crosses your path should not be ignored. Only comet fragments ever In the 1970's when Prof Kramers was working at the Bernard Price Institute of Geophysical Research (BPI Geophysics) at Wits, his main job was to use lead isotopes to trace the origin of kimberlites and diamonds.

The third UK Awards show was held on November 17th 2016.
It was a unique opportunity to network with journalists, websites, events companies and bloggers. The awards were judged by an independent panel of industry experts.
The lab also offers C: N, %C and %N measurements on collagen extracted from non-cremated bones in addition to δ15N and δ13C at no additional cost for samples sent for radiocarbon dating.
The lab also provides stable isotope analyses on a standalone basis.
