Global Climate Change (GEO 237) looks back in time Posted on March 20th, 2011 by

In February (before the recent thaw), the GEO 237-Global Climate Change class retrieved two sediment cores from Lake Emily near St. Peter.  While we did not get a “long” record this time due to technical difficulties and time limitations, we did get a 2-meter, ~200 year record of environmental change as recorded in the sediments.  A future class will have to be the first to collect the full 10,000-year climate record that is still lying, unrecovered, in Lake Emily’s basin.
