Snell, Kathryn Assistant Professor


Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Dr. Snell's research investigates sedimentary and geochemical records of terrestrial paleoenvironmental change. She is particularly interested in learning how terrestrial environments respond to rapid climate change events and in using paleoclimate records to reconstruct elevation of mountain ranges in the past. Currently, much of her research focuses on the paleoclimate and tectonic development of the western United States during the last 100 million years.
