Cosmogenic Nuclide Laboratory and Geomorphology Research Group

Jeremy Shakum



Jeremy is a paleoclimatologist interested in using the geologic record of past climate to inform our understanding of future climate change. He is working with Paul Bierman and Alice Nelson in the UVM cosmogenic laboratory to develop the first-ever in situ 10Be record from marine sediments and test whether this can provide a new proxy for Greenland Ice Sheet variability over the Plio-Pleistocene.
