LSU paleoclimatologist starts postdoc at ULL

Congratulations to Dr. Jacob Warner (PhD, LSU, 2021) on his recent hire as postdoctoral researcher at the Schubert Lab of the University of Louisiana-Lafayette.  Jacob will assist Dr. Brian Schubert in completing research funded by a National Science Foundation Paleo Perspectives on Climate Change (P2C2) grant. The project uses stable isotope signals recovered from Eocene-age mummified wood remains excavated in Arctic Canada to reconstruct the temperature of the region ~54 million years ago. Paleoclimatologists are especially interested in this time interval because it could represent an analog for future conditions in the Arctic.
