GEOL 394-01  Paleoclimate
MWF 01:10 pm-02:10 pm OLRI 270 Louisa Bradtmiller
*First day attendance required* Earth's climate has evolved with the planet itself, as changing boundary conditions in the ocean, atmosphere, cryosphere and lithosphere have caused global icehouses, greenhouses and mass extinctions. Information about these events is recorded in the geologic record in the form of fossils and rock sequences, but also in lake and ocean sediment cores, ice cores, cave deposits and tree rings. This course will provide an overview of changes in climate throughout Earth history while also examining the proxies and archives used to reconstruct those changes. We will also construct our own record of paleoclimate using cores from a local lake and a variety of laboratory techniques. Prerequisites: an introductory course on either climate or Earth history. Prerequisite: one of the following: any GEOL course or ENVI 140 or ENVI 150.
