Gideon Henderson


Professor Gideon Henderson FRS is a geochemist whose research focuses on the influence of marine chemistry on the carbon cycle and climate, and on understanding long-term climate change by study of the past.  A particular expertise is the use of natural radioactive isotopes to establish the rates of oceanic processes, and the timing of past climate events.  He seeks to understand components of the climate system with relevance to the future, including changes in rainfall, sea level, permafrost, and ocean circulation. 
 
Gideon played a leading role in establishing the GEOTRACES marine-chemistry programme, serving as Co-Chair for the SCOR-sponsored international steering committee for its first six years.   He is Head of the Earth Sciences Department at the University of Oxford.
