Jeff Munroe receives Fulbright teaching/research fellowship to Austria

Jeff Munroe (Geology) has been awarded a 2017-18 Fulbright Scholar grant for teaching/research in Austria where he will be a Visiting Professor of Natural Science at the University of Innsbruck. Jeff will contribute lectures or a course for the graduate program in Quaternary Geology during the spring semester of 2018. His research for this grant, titled Speleothem-based Reconstruction of Last Glacial Maximum Paleoclimate involves collaboration with Austrian colleagues in one of the world’s foremost cave research laboratories. Samples collected from caves as part of Jeff’s long-term research in the Uinta Mountains of Utah will be analyzed in Innsbruck to shed new light on climatic conditions in the Rocky Mountains during the last glaciation.
