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.
