Solid Facts and Missing Pieces: What Rocks Can Tell Us About Sea Level Change with Jacky Austermann
A talk on what rocks can tell us about sea level change, from geodynamicist Jackie Austermann, Assistant Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences
Jackie is part of the Seismology, Geology and Tectonophysics Division of Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. In her research, she studies sea level changes ranging from the past glacial cycles to Millions of years ago in order to infer ice mass changes and ice sheet stability as well as constrain the Earth's rheology. She also works on geodynamic and plate tectonic problems dealing with plate driving forces and dynamics of the Earth's deep interior.
