Description

Please join us for this week's seminar

Speaker: Dr. Ganqing Jiang

Topic: " Preparing for Graduate School "

Dr. Jiang’s research focuses on environmental and climate changes across critical transitions in Earth’s history. In particular, he utilizes an integrated field, petrographic, and isotope-geochemical approach to study the origin of carbon isotope anomalies and unusual oceanographic changes at the dawn of animal life and across the major Paleozoic greenhouse−icehouse transitions. Through comparative study of the Neoproterozoic to Paleozoic sedimentary archives in the Great Basin of western U.S. and in other continents such as South China, his research attempts to better understand the causal relationships between carbon isotope excursions, ocean redox changes, sea-level changes and biotic innovations.
