My primary research focus is the environmental history of North Stradbroke Island (NSI), south-east Queensland.
The North Stradbroke Island project is supported by an ARC Discovery grant (DP150103875) examining the long-term climate and environmental history of the region. The main aim of the project is to develop 100,000-year long climate records that are independent of changes in catchment hydrology. These will be compared to pollen-based records of vegetation change and Sporomiella as a record of the presence of megaherbivores.
The project’s original collaborators were Dr Cameron Barr (postdoctoral fellow), Professor Melanie Leng (Nottingham), Associate Professor Patrick Moss (Queensland), Dr Jeremy Shakun (Boston), Associate Professor Nigel Spooner (Adelaide) and Drs Jon Marshall and Glenn McGregor (Queensland Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation). The project “team” now includes: Dr Andrew Henderson (Newcastle, UK: on stable isotopes), Dr Francesca McInerney (Adelaide: compound specific H isotopes), Dr Lee Arnold (Adelaide-OSL geochrology), Chris Kemp and Haidee Cadd (Adelaide PhD students: pollen analysis).

In addition to the long term history of NSI, I am working with Cameron Barr and a number of colleagues on the Holocene climate history of south-east Queensland. We are using a recently published rainfall-carbon isotope relationship in Melaleuca quinquenervia leaves (Tibby et al. 2016) to develop a history of rainfall from leaves laid down in Swallow Lagoon.

My other projects include:
Analysis of diatoms growing on artificial substrates deployed in the streams of south-east South Australia, with the aim of improving water quality guidelines for South Australia (for more details see johntibby.wordpress.com). The project is in collaboration with the Environment Protection Authority (SA).

Using diatoms to infer the environmental history of the Naracoorte Caves in collaboration with Dr Liz Reed, Dr Lee Arnold, Associate Professor Nigel Spooner (Adelaide) and many others. My Honours student Rhianna Giddens is examining the relationship between diatom composition and light, moisture and other variables in the caves

Analysis of diatom-water quality relationships on Cape York Peninsula for the Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts (Qld). This project aims to better understand the influence of water quality on the biota in springs on Cape York. This will ultimately contribute to water resource planning on The Cape.

Other ongoing projects include investigation of rates of sedimentation in waterholes in the Moonie River (south-west Queensland) and the environmental history of Burdekin River wetlands. These projects are funded by, and conducted in collaboration with Queensland's Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts.

Over the past year consultancy projects have been undertaken for many clients. These have mainly focused on analysing the effect of mine drainage and waste water discharge on stream algal communities.
