Marissa and Eunji attended Mer Bleue peatland workshop, McGill Univ., Montreal, including a field trip to Mer Bleue research site. Peatland researchers presented their recent works for Mer Bleue Bog and other world peatlands in diverse themes, from phenology to biogeochemistry, by experiments to modellings. The workshop was an excellent opportunity to broaden our views… Read More Participating in 2017 Mer Bleue Workshop
In May 2017, PhD students Magdalena Sobol and April Dalton attended the Past Global Changes Open Science Meeting (PAGES-OSM) in Zaragaoza, Spain. Magda presented her work on South African pollen and April presented her Pleistocene work from the Hudson Bay Lowlands. Thank you to all of the organizers for a fantastic conference!
We are excited to announce that PhD student April Dalton has published part of her thesis work from the Hudson Bay Lowlands in Boreas. Check out: DOI: 10.1111/bor.12218
We are excited to announce that Kristen Beck (MSc 2013) published her thesis work in PLoS ONE. It was a fantastic experience working with this open access journal. Check out: doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0159937
So excited that this has come out! It is the culmination of many years of work in exciting cross-disciplinary collaborations. Thanks to editors Max Friesen and Owen Mason for seeing this through to completion. Sarah Finkelstein authored Chapter 27 on middle / late Holocene paleoclimates of Greenland and the Eastern Canadian Arctic.
Sarah Finkelstein participating in the launch meeting for the PAGES C-PEAT research cluster at LDEO, New York. She will be presenting an update on our work on geochronology and palynology of Pleistocene peatlands in the Hudson Bay Lowlands.
