Deglacial Lake-level History of the Mono Basin, California

Lead PI: Sidney Rasbury Hemming

Unit Affiliation: Geochemistry, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)

September 2012 - August 2013
Inactive
North America
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The project will test two competing hypotheses on the Mono Basin's hydroclimate using geomorphic, stratigraphic, and chronologic data. This will result in a lake level record that is precise enough to compare the Mono Basin's hydrologic record to other major global climate change archives.
