AUNE ES PhD student Karen Saunders wins competitive spot at UMN institute

Antioch University New England ES PhD student Karen Saunders has been accepted to the LacCore/CSDCO Drilling and Coring Summer Institute (DCSI). Karen is researching the long-term climate, environmental, and human history of New England and the Northeast US by examining geological records (last 12,000 years) of changes preserved in cores of organic materials in ideal locations determined by her and her committee via searches of existing literature and independent surveys and coring.

The applicant pool for the institute was extremely competitive, and it was noted that Karen’s application stood out as excellent “because of its thoughtfulness, detail, and specificity, and how her stated needs align with what the DCSI offers.”

LaCCore is a highly regarded analytical laboratory housed at the University of Minnesota. LacCore and the associated Continental Scientific Drilling Coordination Office (CSDCO) provide infrastructure for scientists utilizing core samples from Earth’s continents in their research, through integrated support for coring and drilling projects, from project inception through curation.
