Research Theme: Paleoclimate

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

The study of past climates, especially changes in climate throughout the history of the earth. Research in this category uses evidence from a wide range of sources (sediments, rocks, ice sheets, tree rings, coral, and so on) to determine past states of the climate globally and in specific regions.
