Professor Jennifer Fitchett

Professor Jennifer Fitchett is a consultant for the Metsemegologolo project. Her research is situated within the discipline biometeorology, exploring the impacts of climate change on both the natural environment and human populations. My published research can be grouped into three main themes: 1) long term climate and environmental change throughout the late Quaternary reconstructed from palaeoenvironmental proxy records, 2) contemporary climate change over recent decades and 3) the impact of these climatic changes on tourism. This research has involved the quantitative analysis of climate records and palaeoenvironmental proxies from Iran, Lesotho and South Africa, and has involved collaboration with researchers from Iran, the United Kingdom, Sweden and South Africa.
