EARTH Satellite Workshop
February 2, 2019 – Schedule

Saturday—February 2, 2019

Location: Sinagua Middle School, Room 822, Flagstaff, AZ

0830 – 0845 OpeningIntroductions, food and logistics
0845 – 0930 Data collection and how to use in the classroom with an emphasis climate change research and data proxies:

Do you know Diatoms?

0930 – 1045 PresentationClimate of the Present, Past, and Future
Ellie Broadman, PhD Student, Climate and Environmental Change

Ellie Broadman is a paleoclimatologist, reconstructing past climate and environmental change using information found in geologic records such as lake sediments. Currently, Ellie is a PhD student in the School of Earth and Sustainability at Northern Arizona University, where she is using diatoms, stable isotope geochemistry, and climate modeling to understand changes in atmospheric circulation and precipitation patterns in the North Pacific region, especially in sub-arctic and arctic Alaska. More broadly, Ellie is passionate about studying many aspects of earth and environmental science, as well as science communication and education; Ellie has been a researcher with the PolarTREC program, and is pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Science Communication alongside her PhD. Before coming to Flagstaff and NAU, Ellie worked at the US Geological Survey in Menlo Park, CA after receiving her B.A. in Geography from UC Berkeley.

PowerPoint Presentation: Climate of the Present, Past, and Future;
