Page Quinton

Page Quinton

Instructor: EAS X429. SUNY Pottsdam, Pottsdam, NY. My research focuses on understanding and documenting climate change in the geologic past. By embracing a multidisciplinary approach using stable isotope geochemistry, micropaleontology, and sedimentology I attempt to relate changes in global climate to perturbations in the global carbon cycle and major mass extinction events in deep time intervals (e.g. the Ordovician, Permian-Triassic boundary, and Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary).
