My name is Diederik Liebrand. I am a climate scientist specialised in cyclostratigraphy, astrochronology, palaeoclimatology and palaeoceanography.

Research interests

The influence of orbital forcing on Cenozoic climate, ice sheets and oceanography.


Stratigraphic correlation and splicing. Astronomical age-calibration of marine sediments and rock outcrops. High-resolution climate reconstructions with a focus on Icehouse Earth (between 34 and 0 million years ago). Applying time-series analysis to climate records. Investigating the complex responses of “System Earth” to astronomical climate forcing.
