Costijn Zwart investigated the relationship between rainwater chemistry and weather types in tropical north Australia. He found that different chemistries are related to cloud- and rainfall type. These results formed the basis for the interpretation of a lake sediment record that will ultimately contribute to unravel natural and human drivers of change in northern Australia's climate and biodiversity.
