New NSF project awarded to the School of Geosciences

Assistant Professor Aubrey Hillman is the PI of a new NSF-funded project that will investigate whether climate variability over the last 4000 years (specifically El Nino events) played a role in social reorganization by reconstructing climate in a remote Peruvian lake that is situated up-valley of archaeological sites dating to 1000-1400 AD.

Project Title: Coupling and Cohesion as Factors Affecting Vulnerability to Abrupt Climate Change
co-PIs: Dr. Benjamin Vining at the University of Arkansas and Dr. Daniel Contreras at the University of Maryland
