B.Sc., University of Victoria (Department of Geography)
I am interested in developing stratigraphic, geomorphic, and geochemical records of northern climate change and associated earth system impacts. My work and research interests span timescales ranging from millions of years to the last several centuries, with a particular focus on periods when climate was similar to or warmer than today, such as Pleistocene "super-interglacials" and Cenozoic greenhouse intervals.
Quaternary geoscience and applied geomorphology, including dating methods, stratigraphy and paleoclimates. Fundamentals of interpretation and mapping of surficial geology and geomorphology from aerial photographs and satellite images with a focus on western Canada. Some field work may be required. Prerequisites: EAS 221 and 225. [Faculty of Science]Winter Term 2021
