Tune in to hear NAU Geologist Michael Smith talk to KJZZ’s The Show about past and future climate variation. Michael explains how detailed records from warm periods in the past (from the NSF-funded Green River Eocene Earth and Climate Observatory project) could help us to predict the where and when of current and future increases in temperature.
School of Earth & Sustainability professor Mike Smith is studying past climate warming to learn about the future. Smith is part of a new multidisciplinary study involving eight institutions and a multimillion-dollar National Science Foundation grant. Read more at NAU News.
