Christine Chen | Geologist

It’s easy to look up how much rain fell in 2018, 2000, or even 1920. But how do we figure out how rainfall was different 1,000 or more years ago--and what does that have to do with modern climate change? Christine is a geologist from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and National Geographic Young Explorer who studies the history of Earth's changing climate. In her classroom, Christine will talk about her research studying ancient lakes in exciting far-flung places like the high-altitude central Andes and the deserts of the western United States. She'll describe her search for relict shorelines and fossilized algae--imprints on the landscape left behind by ancient climates that now serve as natural records of Earth's past rainfall. Join her for a trip back in time to explore the dramatic changes in water availability around the world, and what it may mean for our future.
