Darrell Kaufman studies geologic records of environmental and climatic changes that took
place during the recent past. Darrell studies lake and glacial deposits that provide an
archive of long-term climate variability. Because dating of geological
materials is pivotal to understanding the timing, rates, and regional extent of
paleoclimatic changes, Darrell is particularly interested in geochronology,
especially amino acid geochronology and tephrochronology. And, because accurate
dating of geologic deposits is predicated on understanding the geologic context
of the dated materials, Darrell has a strong emphasis in field geology. Darrell has been
involved in a variety of field-oriented projects, principally in the Arctic
where past environmental changes have been most pronounced and where current climatic
changes are strongest.
