Glaciers, Water & People
Jeff Mckenzie interviewed by cbc Radio about our work in the Cordillera Blanca.
Our Andean glacier melt research just got featured in a Nature News piece:
Melting in the Andes: Goodbye glaciers
The researchers are studying how quickly the ice, rock and lake warm up during the day and cool at night. By correlating these detailed data with measurements of ice thickness and extent made remotely by satellite and planes, the team hopes to develop models for forecasting how quickly glaciers will retreat across the Cordillera Blanca and what the impacts will be.

Nathan Stansell co-author in several research papers
Our very own Nathan Stansell and their associates have published several papers during this year. One of them “1,500 year quantitative reconstruction of winter precipitation in the Pacific Northwest” was highlighted in the media. That paper is result of an ongoing research about droughts in American West (more details here).

Nathan Stansell faculty advisor for the 25th Keck Geology Undergraduate Symposium held at Amherst College in Amherst, MA.
The Keck Geology Consortium is a multi-college collaboration focused on enriching undergraduate education through development of high-quality research experiences. Now in its 20th year, the Consortium has been a fundamental component of the undergraduate-research landscape since its inaugural projects in 1987.
