Earth and Environmental Sciences
For five years, Brian Arbic has directed a summer school in oceanography and environmental sciences along with Ghanaian, US, and European colleagues. Here he reflects on the unexpected path on which his 1992 Peace Corps assignment has placed his career.
A team of scientists including Chris Poulsen and former postdoc Jiang Zhu has nailed down the temperature at the peak of the last ice age, a time known as the Last Glacial Maximum, to about 46 degrees Fahrenheit.

Earth Camp aims to bring diversity to environmental sciences
Every summer for three years in a row, a diverse group of Michigan high school students spends a week exploring nature and learning about the environment through the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences’ Earth Camp. The camp hopes to spark interest among a new generation to enter the field.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences needs your support.
