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. 51: Money Money Money - An Introduction

    Ep. 51: Money Money Money - An Introduction

    We begin a new arc that is a little bit different, exploring the somewhat hidden world of the money behind science (paleolimnology included). In episode 51 we preview the arc's major topics related to graduate student funding, research funding for faculty / lab groups, and several bigger picture topics.

Great for Grad Students!

Adam and Josh do a great job at providing an overview to the world of paleolimnology. This is a great resource for graduate students and others new to the field. It’s also great to listen to while you’re IDing and counting Cladocera at your microscope!
