42 minutes | 16 days ago
Ep. 30: Acidification - Problem Solved?
Recently the 30th anniversary of a critical treaty on acid rain was celebrated, and in this episode we explore the legacy of acidification, whether the problem is truly "solved", and the role of paleolimnology in that discussion.

Ep. 27: One Complete Varve
One full varve has been deposited since we officially launched the show. So we thought it a good time to reflect on what we've accomplished so far and what we hope to do over the next year.

Ep. 26: Illuminating Biovectors - with Matt Duda
Today we discuss how paleolimnology can track biovectors with Matthew Duda. Matthew is a PhD candidate at Queen's University and his work studying the dynamics of the world's largest colony of Leach’s Storm-petrel (Hydrobates leucorhous) has led to multiple high profile publications and he is one of the recipients of this years Rob Peters Award from the Society of Canadian Limnologists.

Ep. 25: Defining The Anthropocene
Today on Topical Paleolimnology we discuss formally recognizing the Anthropocene ("Age of Humans")as a new geological age to the history of the Earth, and the role lake sediments may play in that formal designation.

Ep. 24: Many Grains of Salt
A new Arc on Topical Paleolimnology shifts our focus back to the present, and current environmental questions that are being addressed using sediment archives. We begin with road salt and the widespread impact the de-icing of roads is having on freshwater systems.

Ep. 23: Core Ideas and Smol
We conclude our History of Paleolimnology arc by talking to John Smol, Canada Research Chair in Environmental Change at Queen's University, about his perspectives on the growth of paleolimnology over the past four decades, including his role as founding editor of the Journal of Paleolimnology, and former chair of the IPA.

Ep. 21: A History of Paleolimnology - Part 3 The Road to Mordor
The third episode in our History of Paleolimnology examines how a relatively young discipline tackled one of the major environmental issues of the 1970s and 1980s - acid rain.

Ep. 17: Memeing to the Choir
As our Contagious Ideas Arc continues to go viral, we embrace the meta-narrative and delve into the (love-hate) relationships between social media and science.
