Reconstructing Paleoclimate and Wildfire History in Sierra de San Pedro Mártir, Baja California, Mexico

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

In 2019, a sediment core was collected from Sierra de San Pedro Mártir, Baja California, Mexico. Using radiometric dating, the core has been used to create an age model, dating back to 8,000 years ago. Currently, a collaborative team is working to analyze proxies for paleoclimate and wildfire history. This research aims to chart prehistoric variation of both ENSO and the North American Monsoon (NAM), and it will inform land management strategies and progressive policy for the broader region.
