Chris Moy


Chris is an associate professor at Otago University. His research uses sediment cores to evaluate past changes in Southern Hemisphere climate, carbon cycling, and marine biogeochemical cycling. He identifies how key components of the global climate system have changed in the past and how the magnitude of past change compares to modern observations. Chris applies a geochemical approach to lacustrine, peatland, marine, and fjord sediment records obtained from New Zealand, the subantarctic Islands, southern South America, and the Gulf of Alaska to evaluate past change.
