Lehman, Scott J Sr Research Associate


Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • My primary research interests include quantitative analysis of the dynamics of global climate change on decade to millennial time scales, development of geochemical records of past global change, calibration of the radiocarbon time scale, method development in radiocarbon dating, and use of 14C as a tracer in the contemporary and ancient carbon cycles. I also direct the CU-INSTAAR Laboratory for AMS Radiocarbon Preparation and Research (NSRL). In addition to supporting the activities of my own research group, the lab provides analytical services to members of the CU community and to outside users. A major activity in the lab is the processing of air samples from the NOAA Global Greenhouse Gas Reference Network as a means of detecting recently added fossil fuel derived CO2 in the atmosphere.
