Contributions in Quaternary Geology, Glacial Geomorphology, and Glaciology by members of the Geoscience Department and the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey.

University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Quaternary and Glacial group is focused on understanding the history and mechanics that have dictated the recent geologic past in order to improve projections of the future. Shaun Marcott leads a group of researchers who seek to understand how climate has fluctuated over the Quaternary and what affects those fluctuations have had on the geologic record. Luke Zoet leads a group of researchers who look to understand the processes that control glaciers, using techniques from both glaciology and glacial geomorphology.
