New Insights From Old Dirt

Paleosols are soils that were once at the Earth’s surface, but were subsequently buried and preserved in the geological record. Paleosols encode important information regarding past Earth climates, landscapes, and atmospheric chemistry. I will highlight some of the methods used to study paleosols and provide examples of paleoenvironment reconstructions of the near and very distant past.

Steve Driese (Ph.D., Wisconsin-Madison) is a Professor of Geosciences at Baylor University. Join the speaker and guests for coffee and cookies prior to each lecture at 6:30 pm.

Science Thursdays lectures are free and open to the public; however, admission to the museum is not included.
