We use glacial and lacustrine records to study climate change in the Arctic. We
study ice sheet processes and the history of glaciation to understand
arctic climate change during the Pleistocene and the Holocene. We use cosmogenic
radionuclides to date glacial features and to understand basal ice sheet processes.
We employ standard paleolimnologic techniques on both organic and proglacial
sediments to understand paleoenvironmental change on many timescales (last
century, Holocene, late Pleistocene, earlier interglacials).
