What Can We Learn From UWM's Geoscience Research?

When we hear stories about climate change, we often think about how temperatures have increased on our planet over the past 50 or 100 years. But if you are a geoscientist, your research could take you much farther back in earth’s history.

Instead of studying the past one, two, or 300 years of data, you could be looking at what the world was like two or three hundred million years ago. What lessons can we learn from that research?

On this edition of UWM Today, we’re going to try to answer that and many other questions about what our world once looked like and what it might become in the future. Our guests include John Isbell, a Distinguished Professor of Geosciences at UWM, and students Kate Pauls and Nick Fudorchuk. Both are working on their doctoral degrees under Isbell’s direction.
