Weekly, Maine Edge Report on Researchers Studying Ice Age in Mongolia

The Weekly and The Maine Edge published a University of Maine news release about scientists who traveled to Mongolia to learn about processes that launch Earth out of an ice age. Aaron Putnam, a research associate with UMaine’s Climate Change Institute, is conducting glacial geology research with doctoral student Peter Strand. Fieldwork will include mapping and collecting samples of moraines and glacial geomorphologic features around Khoton Nuur. Strand and Putnam are blogging about their experiences during the monthlong trek, which is being done in collaboration with Mongolia University of Science and Technology.
