Geology and Climate Change
How do geologists approach climate change? Geologists study the physical structures of the Earth, and can bring millions of years of the Earth's paleoclimatic record to an understanding of current questions. Here are some areas geologists might explore or questions they might ask.
- Does the geological record support current theories of climate change?
- What are the different geological parameters or methods one can use for climate change research?
- How might climate change affect the geohazards we face in the future?
