Description
TOPICS IN PALEOLIMNOLOGY
This graduate class will focus on the study lake sediments as archives of climatic change. Lake deposits form a significant part of the geologic record and contain high resolution records of past climatic and environmental changes in continental environments. Because lake deposits are the product of diverse geochemical experiments they provide a framework to discuss numerous problems which are of general interest in both chemical sedimentology and general sedimentology. Readings assigned from current journal articles.
