The Process of Reconstructing Past Fire Regimes

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Fish Lake, Utah, contains sediment from hundreds of thousands of years of environmental history in this region. My research includes the analysis of charcoal from a sediment core from Fish Lake to reconstruct fire history throughout this region. This sediment core contains a high-resolution record with charcoal and pollen that are sensitive to climate change. This is valuable information for understanding past climate, disturbance, and how fire regimes have reacted to these previous climates.
