UMaine Research Cited in UA News

The University of Alabama’s UA News published an article on research that found clamshells used in ancient funeral ceremonies offer more evidence as to how climate change may have contributed to the gradual collapse of the Moche, an early South-American civilization. The research, which was recently published in the scientific journal Geology, was conducted by University of Alabama scientists as well as representatives from the University of Maine, the U.S. Geological Survey, the Arizona Accelerator Mass Spectrometry Facility, the University of Arizona, the University of Trujillo in Peru and Harvard University. The researchers found El Nino and an intertwined ocean phenomenon likely contributed to the Moche’s downfall.
