The UMass Biogeochem faculty are privileged to work with these three exceptionally talented and motivated PhD students who designed a project, organized the fieldwork, analyzed the samples, and published the results. Alumni Awards from the UMass Geosciences Department partially supported this research.

A eye-opening 900-year reconstruction of Northeastern #climate was just published by grad students Daniel Miller, Helen Habicht, & Benjamin Keisling, w/ Dr's Isla Castañeda and Ray Bradley. It reveals previously undetected past temperature cycles in unprecedented detail and extends the record 900 years into the past, well beyond the previous early date of 1850...
