In a new study, published this week in Nature GeoScience, DRI hydrogeologists and atmospheric scientists, led by Joe McConnell, Ph.D., analyze past climate variability using ice cores from West Antarctica.
A team of U.S. ice-coring scientists and engineers in Antarctica, funded by the National Science Foundation and led by Dr. Kendrick Taylor, a research professor with the Division of Hydrologic Sciences at Nevada’s Desert Research Institute, have recovered from the ice sheet a record of past climate and greenhouse gases in the atmosphere that extends back 68,000 years.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has named Justin Huntington, Desert Research Institute assistant research professor, to the National Science Team supporting the new Landsat Data Continuity Mission Satellite, scheduled to launch in February from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
The 2012 Lake Tahoe Summit provided an opportunity for Desert Research Institute (DRI) reaseachers to demonstrate to Sen. Dean Heller methods used to study changes in water clarity and invasive species.
