EARS 75 Quaternary Paleoclimatology

Evidence for past (paleo) climate change provides essential information about Earth's climate system and the potential for future change. This course focuses on understanding paleoclimate changes during the Quaternary Period such as glacial-interglacial variability, rapid climate changes, and the recent "stable" climatic conditions of the Holocene epoch. We will rely on published scientific data to examine these various topics and critically evaluate hypotheses for mechanisms of climate change.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
