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. 35: Welcome to Paleolimnology!

    We're taking a short break from the small picture arc, to say welcome to all the new paleolimnology grad students out there. In the episode we share a few suggestions (from ourselves and some current students) of tips for new paleolimnologists.

    Ep. 32: Pollen Counts

    Ep. 32: Pollen Counts

    As we move onto a new arc of episodes focusing on the small picture (a deeper dive on some important paleolimnological indicators) we'll begin by exploring why pollen counts!

    Ep. 31: The Unbleakness Of Climate Change

    Ep. 31: The Unbleakness Of Climate Change

    We complete our current arc with the most topical of topics: climate change. We discuss why we should care, how paleo can contribute to this discussion, and if there is cause to be hopeful.
