About the Event: 

For three weeks in July, we participated in the Urbino Summer School in Paleoclimatology (USSP) intensive course that focused on past climate dynamics. Taught by top paleoclimate scientists, USSP aims for graduate students to understand geochemical proxy data and its use in reconstructing and modeling past climates. During the course, we gained an advanced understanding of climate proxies from various natural archives such as tree rings, corals and marine/lake sediments. We also learned how to use climate models as tools for interpreting complicated proxy records the driving mechanisms of processes and changes, and ultimately predicting future climate. Through lectures, fieldwork and field data analysis, we explored these tools and techniques, focusing on deep-time climate histories from the Cretaceous to the Holocene.

About the Speaker: 

Riovie Ramos

Riovie Ramos is a fourth year PhD candidate under the supervision of Dr. Nathalie Goodkin at the Earth Observatory of Singapore. Riovie received her B.S. in Geology and M.S. in Marine Science from the University of the Philippines. She uses corals to reconstruct Indo-Pacific climate variability over the past 100-300 years using d18O, Sr/Ca, Ba/Ca and D14proxies.

Sujata Murty

Sujata Murty is a fourth year PhD candidate under the supervision of Dr. Nathalie Goodkin at the Earth Observatory of Singapore. Sujata received her B.A. from Oberlin College in the US. She uses corals to reconstruct Indo-Pacific climate variability over the past 100-300 years using d18O, Sr/Ca, Ba/Ca and D14proxies.
