The Great Basin Paleoenvironmental Database (GBPED) is a collection of paleoenvironmental literature that focuses on the hydrologic Great Basin. More specifically, we have compiled the references and abstracts (if available) of peer-reviewed literature on pluvial lakes, rivers, alluvial fans, past glaciers, and other systems that record the natural history of the Great Basin.

This project is a contribution to INQUA TERPRO (Commission on Terrestrial Processes, Deposits and History. It comprises regional correspondents who are familiar with the information for their area and are responsible for compiling data on chronology and stratigraphy from published sources. These data are then added to the database by the project leader.
Currently, the database includes information for 790 sites world wide, comprising 2351 luminescence and radiocarbon ages.
DEES researcher, Joe Grzymski, lead a team in Antarctica where they studied the molecular biology and evolution of microscopic organisms.
DEES faculty members, Alison Murray and Christian Fritsen, along with several colleagues participated in ongoing research of the Antarctic lake. Support for this project is being provided by the National Science Foundation.
Directed by DEES Assistant Research Archaeologist, David Page, mapped the 1913 and 1919 routes of the Lincoln Highway through U.S. Army Dugway Proving Ground. Review the project background, view historical photos and rephotography, and take a photo tour through a clickable map via the project website.
