Reconstructing the Paleoclimatology of Utah’s West Desert via Sediment Analysis

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Analysis of a sediment core from the Utah Testing and Training Range (UTTR) in Utah's West desert was conducted in order to reconstruct the environmental history of the region. Analysis methods included three proxy methods: loss-on-ignition (LOI) testing, magnetic susceptibility testing, and charcoal counting. Once these proxy tests were performed on the core, the data were interpreted and cross-referenced to create a paleoenvironmental reconstruction for this location.
