Ancient chironomid larvae in lakes could provide the answer to how climate change has affected Australia’s weather over the past 21,000 years.

Dr Craig Woodward from The School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Management at UQ is working with a team of scientists, led by Professor Shulmeister, on a project that aims to demonstrate how climate systems in SE Australia responded to large scale global change during Australia’s last glacial maximum, about 21,000 years ago.
