oooh, orphan Nerilie Abram (born June 1977) is an Australian Earth Scientist, currently a research fellow with Australian National University's School of Earth Sciences.[1][2][3] She worked as an ice core scientist with the British Antarctic Survey[4] before returning to Australia.

Abram was part of the British Antarctic Survey team that drilled the James Ross Island ice core in 2008. Outcomes of this activity included that the Antarctic Peninsula is warming faster than expected, resulting in increased summer ice melt in that area of Antarctica.[4] Abram was also part of the chemical analysis team of the NEEM ice core project in Northern Greenland in 2010 which sought to retrieve ice from the Eemian inter-glacial period to discover what Earth would be like under the effects of global warming.[5] She also works to reconstruct tropical climate records through coral and cave samples with a view to advancing knowledge of Australian rainfall patterns.[4]

IN 2014 Dr Adram using Supercomputer Raijin did extensive research that demonstrated that the southward shift in westerly winds caused by greenhouse emmissions is the dominate driver for the reduction in rainfall in Australia.[6]
