cryospheric processes

Florentine, Caitlyn

Lab Manager
Earth Sciences
Montana State University - Bozeman

I manage the MSU Paleoecology Lab, headed by Cathy Whitlock. The Paleoecology Lab group studies fire and vegetation history of the Quaternary Period via sediment core charcoal and pollen analysis. My undergraduate degree is from Colorado College in Geology and my M.S. is from MSU in Earth Sciences. My masters thesis project focused on rock glacier distribution, deformation mechanics, and rock glacier ice as a microbial habitat. I continue to be interested in cryospheric processes and alpine environments, particularly glacier mechanics and the role that debris plays in glacial systems.
