Received MT NASA Space Grant Research Initiation Award

University of Montana Western Assistant Professor of Geology, Geochemistry and Climate Science, Spruce Schoenemann has been awarded a research grant from the Montana NASA Space Grant Consortium.
Titled “Precipitation Isotope Ratios and Tree-ring based Snowpack Relationships to inform Paleoclimate Reconstructions from Lake Sediment Cores,” this twelve-month research project aims to create a climate reconstruction based on isotope data collected from lake sediments, cross-referenced with tree ring records to provide an idea of the past climate and snowpack in Southwestern Montana going back up to 10,000 years.
