Student Research

During the summer of 2017, Jesse traveled to two remote indigenous villages with Dr. Jon Rosales to sample driftwood.  The river of origin and approximate age of the tree can be determined from the growth rings on the driftwood.  This information, along with GPS data, will be used to estimate storm surge in a broader effort to estimate whether storm intensity is increasing in the Arctic with climate change.
