Dr. DeanDr Dean is an Isotope Geochemist within the Stable Isotope Group at the British Geological Survey. He specialises in using oxygen isotope analysis of lake sediments to reconstruct past climate and is particularly interested in changes in the hydroclimate of the Near East in the Late Quaternary. Working for the world’s premier geological survey, but having degrees in Geography, has led to much mocking, but his colouring pencils are always in demand from the geologists!
