Winski grant highlighted in local media

WABI (Channel 5) and the Maine Campus reported that Dominic Winski, a research assistant professor at the University of Maine Climate Change Institute, received a grant of $137,419 from the National Science Foundation to study a 700-foot ice core harvested in Denali National Park. “The goal of the proposed research is to improve our understanding of relationships between summertime climate and wildfire activity, focusing especially on the Medieval Climate Anomaly when temperatures were perhaps as warm as the 20th century but without the complicating influence of widespread fire ignition and suppression by humans,” says Winski.
