The Ups and Downs of Last Interglacial Sea Level

Thursday, November 5, 2020 | 4:00 PM


Jacky Austermann, of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, will present this lecture.

The Last Interglacial (125 kyr ago) was the last time in Earth’s history when temperatures were on average higher than they are today. Constraining and understanding the evolution of sea level during this time can therefore inform the stability of ice sheets in our currently warming world. Austermann will present work from an ongoing project that aims to reconstruct the evolution of last interglacial sea level in the Bahamas based on fossilized reefs and sedimentary features.
