The second lecture of the 14th Annual Discover the Physical Sciences Breakfast Lecture Series is approaching!

Professor Kathleen R. Johnson, from the department of Earth System Science at UC Irvine will present: The Weather Underground: Reconstructing Past Climates From Cave Deposits on January 24, 2012 at the Student Center, Doheny AB.

About the Speaker: 

Kathleen Johnson was born and raised in Northern Michigan. She obtained her PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in 2004, where her thesis focused on reconstruction of East Asian monsoon history from Chinese speleothems. From 2004-2007, she conducted post-doctoral research at the University of Oxford, UK under a Gary Comer Abrupt Climate Change fellowship. Her research at Oxford focused on testing and development of new seasonal resolution speleothem proxies in a well monitored Chinese cave system. Professor Johnson is currently working on reconstructing past climate change using geochemical measurements on speleothems collected in Sequoia National Park, Laos, and China.
