The past is the key to the future.

Hines Paleoceanography and Climate Lab

We study changes in the ocean and how they interact with Earth's climate system. Some of these events are abrupt and others occur over many thousands of years. By unraveling the drivers of past climate change we can build better tools to understand what will happen in the future.
