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.
