Teddy Graduates!

Congrats to Teddy Mayer on successfully defending his MS thesis titled "Constraining the CO2 Induced Pacific Walker Circulation Strength Changes in the Late Pliocene through Water Isotopologues." Teddy is Ran's first advisee to graduate as well as the first graduate of the C3 lab! Teddy, you will be missed!

Teddy Graduation

AGU Fall 2022

The C3 Lab attended the American Geophysical Union fall meeting. Presentations included -

Shixiong Hu - Emission uncertainties of soot from an asteroid impact at Cretaceous-Paleogene mass extinction event
Hamida Ngoma Nadoya - Investigation of the South American Monsoon during the Miocene Climate Optimum
Taylor Deneau - Emulating climate and δ18O of precipitation over the Antarctic ice sheet during the Pliocene
Joey Schnaubelt - Investigating Last Interglacial Antarctic proxy signals through Earth system modeling

Nice work everyone!

C3 Lab Summer 2022 Wrap Up

The C3 Lab was busy with research and travel this summer! The semester ended with research presentations by the group at the UConn geosymposium. In May, Mary Grace and Teddy presented on Pliocene climate change at the European Geophysics Union in Vienna. Then, Mary Grace along with others in the Department of Earth Sciences joined GSA’s Thompson Field Forum in California to explore the topographic evolution of the Sierra Nevada. Shixiong traveled to Boulder, CO in July to consult with atmospheric chemistry and climate modeling experts at NCAR and CU-Boulder. And, Hamida also traveled west to attend the first PaleoCamp, which gives an overview of paleoclimatology from experts in the field. In August, Hamida and Mary Grace attended the CESM tutorial at NCAR in Boulder, CO. Finally, Mary Grace, Ran, and Clay went to the Galileo conference in Leeds, UK to discuss all things Pliocene.
