Paleoclimate and Earth System History

In the face of a changing climate, it is important to understand and characterize Earth’s past climate states, and the complex interactions between Earth’s systems that are intertwined with changes in climate.  These observations are critical to informing our predictions about a dynamic future climate.  In the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences we apply experimental and isotope geochemistry, and micropaleontology to these problems to reconstruct past Earth surface conditions and paleoclimates across a wide range of timescales.
