Global Change Lab

Global Environmental Change LabThe Global Environmental Change Lab enables students to explore the inter-relationships among the Earth’s complex environmental systems and methodologies used by a diverse group of scientists (e.g., atmospheric chemists, biologists, climatologists, dendroecologists, paleoclimatologists, snow scientists, etc.). Labs will provide students with a sound understanding of the patterns and processes of climate change, as well as introduce them to the scientific method of inquiry through active approaches such as data collection, data analysis, evaluation, and discussion.

Examples of labs conducted in the Global Environmental Change Lab:

  • Hypothesis Generation & Testing
  • Global Biomes & Climate
  • Species Imperilment & Extinction
  • Mastodon Matrix & Ice Age Environments
  • Dendrecology of Eastern Deciduous Forests
