New Paleoclimate Lab Studies Earth’s Climate Past

ETEC’s Paleoclimate Lab officially opened its doors this summer and is focused on analyzing samples of natural resources, such as coral and lake sediment, to help reconstruct Earth’s climate history and determine how it relates to present or future climate trends.

The lab research is led by Sujata Murty and Aubrey Hillman, assistant professors in the Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences, along with about a dozen undergraduate and graduate student assistants.
