Prof. Spruce Schoenemann
I am an Associate Professor of Geology, Geochemistry, and Climate Science in the Environmental Sciences Dept. at the University of Montana Western. I earned my doctorate in Paleoclimatology and Isotope Geochemistry with Dr. Eric Steig from the University of Washington. I have spent years studying polar regions and reconstructing climate from ice cores, syngenetic permafrost, lake sediments, and tree-rings.

MY CURRENT RESEARCH
Currently investigating water isotopes of southwest MT snowpack, temperatures, and SWE to determine Local Meteoric Water Line and d18O-T relationships for winter time precipitation to reconstruct past climate from high-alpine, snow dominated lakes.
