Research Theme: Climate Indicators

Here is an atmospheric-level view of all the Climate Indicators
research and happenings at INSTAAR.

Gathering evidence from many sources (ice cores, ocean currents, lake cores, glacier mass balance, tree rings, isotopic analysis, pollen, temperature logs, and many others), this research measures what is happening in a climate system and models future changes.
