Lauren Santi publishes article synthesizing growth and decay of ancient lakes in the western United States


Lauren Santi et al. published an article titled “Lake Level Fluctuations in the Northern Great Basin for the last 25,000 Years” for the 2019 Desert Symposium in Zzyzx, CA. The authors use carbonate sediments taken from ancient lake shorelines to track the growth and decay of six lakes over geologic timescales. The results are used provide spatial constraints on evolving hydroclimate in the western United States.
