Eric Wolff is a Royal Society Research Professor in the Department of Earth Sciences at University of Cambridge. His research focuses on what ice cores from Greenland and Antarctica can tell us about climate change over the past 800,000 years. Ice core chemistry reveals information about past temperatures, the effect of volcanic eruptions and biomass burning, and greenhouse gas concentrations. Using these ice cores, Eric can draw conclusions about the mechanisms of climate change.

Eric has received multiple awards for his research, including the Lyell Medal from the Geological Society, and the Louis Agassiz Medal from the European Geociences Union. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society, an Honorary Fellow of the British Antarctic Survey, and a founding Chief Editor of the journal Climate of the Past.
