Earth Scientist Wins Back-to-Back Awards

Posted on: May 29, 2019

Assistant Professor Melissa Chipman is using grant awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Geographic Society to support her ongoing research into climate and environmental reconstructions in the Arctic. Thanks to the NSF, she has helped the University acquire a multi-sensor core logger—a suite of instruments used to analyze core materials, such as ancient lake sediments and rock cores. The National Geographic Society is underwriting her involvement with a multinational study of the effects of the 2017 wildfires in Greenland.
