Carly Peltier is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences. She studies glacier and climate changes of the past in order to better understand how the climate system works and to provide the context for current change. To do this she uses cosmogenic exposure dating, geomorphic mapping, sedimentary records, and modeling to derive the climate conditions driving these changes. Her dissertation work focuses mainly on the last few glacial cycles from the deposits left by large lobes of the Patagonian Ice Sheet.
B.A., Mount Holyoke College, with majors in Geology and Economics.
