by | Jul 20, 2023 | Climate Change, Paleoclimatology, Polar Research, Sustainable Future

Carly Peltier is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences. She earned her B.A. from Mount Holyoke College in 2015 where she double majored in Geology and Economics. She is interested in studying glacier and climate changes of the past in order to provide the context for current change. To do this she uses cosmogenic exposure dating, geomorphic mapping, sedimentary records, and modeling to derive the climate conditions driving these changes. Her dissertation work focuses mainly on the last few glacial cycles from the deposits left by large lobes of the Patagonian Ice Sheet.
