• BUMPER v1.0: A Bayesian user-friendly model for palaeo-environmental reconstruction 

      Holden, Philip B.; Birks, Harry John Betteley; Brooks, Stephen J.; Bush, Mark B.; Hwang, Grace M.; Matthews-Bird, Frazer; Valencia, Bryan G.; van Woesik, Robert (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-02-01)
      We describe the Bayesian user-friendly model for palaeo-environmental reconstruction (BUMPER), a Bayesian transfer function for inferring past climate and other environmental variables from microfossil assemblages. BUMPER ...
    • The dynamics of Chironomidae (Insecta: Diptera) assemblages in response to environmental change during the past 700 years on Svalbard 

      Brooks, Stephen J.; Birks, Harry John Betteley (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2004)
      The impact of recent natural and human-induced environmental change on chironomid faunas on Svalbard has been investigated. The modern chironomid fauna was studied from surface-sediment samples collected from 23 lakes in ...
    • Effects of within-lake variability of fossil assemblages on quantitative chironomid-inferred temperature reconstruction 

      Heiri, Oliver; Birks, Harry John Betteley; Brooks, Stephen J.; Velle, Gaute; Willassen, Endre (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2003)
      We studied the effects of within-lake variation of subfossil chironomid assemblages on chironomid-inferred temperatures in five lakes in southern Norway. In each lake six replicate surface-sediment samples in the deepest ...
    • High resolution Late-glacial and early-Holocene summer air temperature records from Scotland inferred from Chironomid assemblages 

      Brooks, Stephen J.; Matthews, Ian P.; Birks, Hilary H.; Birks, Harry John Betteley (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012-05-18)
      Lateglacial and early-Holocene mean July air temperatures have been reconstructed, using a chironomid-based inference model, from lake-sediment sequences from Abernethy Forest, in the eastern Highlands of Scotland, and ...
