Taryn Noble is currently a CRC ORE Research Fellow at the School of Earth Sciences.
Taryn received her MSc degree from the University of Bristol in 2007 in Environmental Geosciences. In 2011 she completed her PhD in palaeoceanography at the University of Cambridge. Taryn's research involved using radiogenic isotopes (Nd, Sr and Pb) to reconstruct past sediment sourcing and flux (Th) to the Southern Ocean during the last glacial period. Taryn also uses Nd isotopes measured in fossil foraminifera shells preserved in the marine sediment to reconstruct changes in deep water mass source and structure in the Atlantic and Pacific sectors of the Southern Ocean.
Since July 2011 Taryn has been working with Bernd Lottermoser on the Environmental Indicators program.
Taryn is working on developing new environmental tools to help predict the formation of acid mine drainage (AMD), a major environmental issue associated with sulphidic ore deposits. This involves validating current static testing procedures used by government, commercial and research labs to characterise the acid-base chemistry of ore and waste rocks. In addition to developing new and improved methods for AMD prediction, Taryn is also involved in geochemical research relating arsenic mobility at remediated mine sites.
