Join UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center and Isabel Montañez, UC Davis Distinguished Professor on June 2nd from 5-7pm for a presentation on The Climate Archive of Caves.

California boasts hundreds of caves, many of them hidden in the Sierra Nevada foothills. These caves hold much more than beautiful icicle-like stalactites and stalagmites. Trapped inside the stalagmites are tiny droplets of fossilized precipitation from climates long ago. UC Davis researcher Isabel Montañez shares how these water droplets provide a “climate archive” that may help us predict future shifts in rain, snow, drought, and fire.
