Research Theme: Climate change inferred from borehole temperature-depth profiles. Changes in temperature at the surface propagate slowly downward into the Earth. These subsurface temperature perturbations therefore can be used to reconstruct past ground surface temperature changes not only for this century, but also for the time immediately preceding installation of meteorologic stations, a period of time that is critical to climate change studies.
