Eric Steig



Eric is an isotope geochemist with whom we have worked for years. He runs a stable isotope lab and has broad interests centered on creating and analyzing paleoclimate records. Eric was a key thinker in the paper that began our work in deciphering the cosmogenic isotopic signature of river sediment.
