COG3 Seminar: Blake Dyer (Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory)

Friday, April 6, 2018 - 10:00am to 11:00am

About the Speaker

Blake Dyer is a postdoctoral research scientist working at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, primarily with Maureen Raymo. The goal of his research is to better understand how sediments record the Earth-system response to changing boundary conditions. The information stored in the sedimentary rock record offers a broad range of past environmental variability that serves as a powerful baseline to differentiate naturally occurring change from human induced change and can reveal feedbacks that may become critically important in predicting future climate change. Dyer investigates this sedimentary record by merging modern data science tools and models with geospatial, geochemical and stratigraphic data collected over extensive field seasons.
