Looking Back to Greenland’s Future: Climate Dynamics and Ice Sheet Response During Holocene Climate Change

March 12, 2020 at 4:00pm5:00pm

Heroy Geology Laboratory, 113

The Department of Earth Sciences presents the K.D. Nelson Lecture Series, featuring guest speaker Elizabeth Thomas from University at Buffalo. Elizabeth  uses organic geochemical and stable isotopic proxies from marine, lake, and loess sediments to reconstruct past precipitation, temperature, and ecological changes during the Pleistocene and Holocene. She also uses climate models to understand the mechanisms that cause such changes, with the goal of better understanding modern global change.
