Description:

"The Quaternary Research Center (QRC) fosters interdisciplinary research on the last two million years of the global environment: a time which encompasses massive, abrupt changes of climate, sea level, global biota and ice extent, as well the evolution of humans and the advent of civilization." Divided into six laboratories, the University of Washington's Center studies Cosmogenic Isotopes, Stable Isotopes, Old Quaternary Isotopes, Periglacial environments, quaternary ecology, paleoecology, and remote sensing. Researchers can find a tremendous amount of isotope, carbon dioxide, and chemistry data on the Taylor Dome, a part of the East Antarctic ice sheet. Students and educators can read papers by the center covering topics such as interactions among climate, surface, and tectonics; and glaciations and climate variations in the Pacific Northwest.
