Environmental Studies and Biology
Will Longo is a limnologist and geochemist interested in how climate and human-induced perturbations affect the functioning of lakes. He concurrently uses the sedimentary records of lakes to reconstruct past changes in climate and biogeochemistry on seasonal to glacial-interglacial timescales. He primarily uses organic molecules preserved in sediments to carry out these investigations in environments ranging from Arctic Alaska, to coastal Massachusetts, to the Indonesian Tropics.
