Paleolimnology is the science (and art) of reconstructing the past environments of fresh water systems. Join Adam Jeziorski and Josh Thienpont as they wade through the wide variety of topics covered by this interdisciplinary field. Whether you are already an expert at collecting sediment cores and microscope identifications, or you simply have an interest in environmental issues such as acid rain, eutrophication, and climate change, this podcast will help make the natural records that surround us as clear as mud.
Ep. 21: A History of Paleolimnology - Part 3 The Road to Mordor
The third episode in our History of Paleolimnology examines how a relatively young discipline tackled one of the major environmental issues of the 1970s and 1980s - acid rain.
Ep. 20: A History of Paleolimnology - Part 2 There and Back Again
We continue our dive into the history of paleolimnology with part 2.
Ep. 19: A History of Paleolimnology - Part 1 The Elder Days
Getting back to our roots with a real focus on the history of paleolimnology.
Ep. 18: Science in A Dangerous Time
In the final episode of our Contagious Ideas Arc, we look at the impacts the global pandemic will have on paleolimnology, both in the short term and well into the future.
Ep. 17: Memeing to the Choir
As our Contagious Ideas Arc continues to go viral, we embrace the meta-narrative and delve into the (love-hate) relationships between social media and science.
Ep. 16: Open Relationships
This time we continue our exploration of Contagious Ideas within paleolimnology with a look at the Open Access movement and its mission to reduce/remove the barriers to scientific research.
