Peter B. deMenocal

Dean of Science, Faculty of Arts and Sciences; Associate Professor, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences

Dr. Peter B. deMenocal is a paleoceanographer/marine geologist who uses geochemical analyses of marine sediments to reconstruct past changes in ocean circulation and terrestrial climate. His research group primarily uses stable isotopic and trace metal (Mg/Ca) analyses of foraminifera and terrigenous sediment geochemistry to investigate how and why climates have changed in the past. Current research projects include developing high-resolution records of Holocene changes in North Atlantic surface and deep ocean circulation and understanding the Holocene history of the northwest African monsoonal system.
