Peru’s Leading Paper Interviews Sandweiss

Daniel Sandweiss, dean and associate provost for graduate studies, was interviewed for a Feb. 26 story in El Comercio, Peru’s leading newspaper, about the use of archaeological and paleoclimatic data to look for ways that past peoples adapted to climate change and to help test models for climate prediction. It’s important to know if models reproduce past climate accurately in order to know how well they might predict future change, Sandweiss says. In some times and places, such as on the coast of Peru, paleoclimate signals from archaeological sites are among the most useful sources of data we have available.
