David BlackAssociate ProfessorSchool of Marine and Atmospheric SciencesSchool of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences
David Black's research focuses on creating records of past climate variability to enhance the ability to detect and predict human influences on global climate change. These studies use the ecology and chemistry of marine fossils, ocean sediments and cave deposits to better understand the natural ranges and rates of change in surface temperature, continental precipitation, ocean circulation and atmospheric circulation through time.
