Using the perspective of the geologic rock record, we will discuss the fundamentals of Earth’s climate system. Particular emphasis will be placed on how we can use the history of climate change to better understand the complex interactions among the atmosphere, oceans, life, and geology.

Page Quinton is an Assistant Professor in Geology at SUNY Potsdam. Her area of expertise is in paleoclimatology, a sub-discipline of geology that studies climate change in the geological record. She recently (2016) received her Ph.D. from the University of Missouri where she completed a dissertation on the Ordovician (488- 443 million years ago) climate.
