Professor D. Jeffrey Over

Department: Geological Science

Funding Source: National Science Foundation

Period of Funding: October 1, 2011 - September 30, 2014

Award Total: $80,000

This research will impact STEM human resource development via participation of undergraduate students in a multi-disciplinary international science team; develop international scientific collaborations; support the science mission of the BSU EARTHTIME geochronology node, and its associated inreach and outreach programs; provide fundamentally improved chronologies for numerous other Paleozoic climate studies and improve our understanding of deep time climate state transitions potentially analogous to those leading to our current icehouse.
