    Dr. Dorothy M. Peteet is a Senior Research Scientist at NASA/Goddard Institute for Space Studies and Adjunct Professor, Columbia University.  She directs the Paleoecology Division of the New Core Lab at Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia and in collaboration with GISS climate modelers and LDEO geochemists is studying the Late Pleistocene and Holocene archives of lakes and wetlands (peatlands, salt marshes, tidal freshwater marshes, bogs, fens).  Documenting past vegetational change using pollen and spores, plant and animal macrofossils, loss-on-ignition, carbon, and charcoal in conjunction with accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) radiocarbon dating, her research provides local and regional records of vegetational and climate history and carbon sequestration. Peteet has performed GCM experiments to test hypotheses concerning LGM and abrupt climate change.  She is interested in climate sensitivity from past climate changes and ecological shifts with future climate change.  Droughts are of recent interest.

    Research Interests

    Paleoclimate

    Understanding of past shifts in climate, including abrupt events.  Research in eastern N. America,
    Siberia, Arctic and subarctic regions of Alaska, Easter Island, etc...and timing is from present back to last interglacial.  Droughts are of particular interest in the northeastern US.

    Paleoecology

    Understanding past vegetational change throughout areas of research and the response of terrestrial ecosystems to climate change.  Pollen and plant macrofossil studies.  Ecosystem functions.

    Carbon sequestration

    Relationship of past vegetational change to past carbon storage in wetlands.

    Human impact

    Human impact and its effect on ecosystems...record in sediment cores reveals invasive species, erosion of watersheds, pollution, etc.

    Current Projects

    Alaskan paleoclimate and paleovegation records and their relationship to carbon storage

    Transect of peatland sites both N-S and E-W in Alaska documents the relationship of past climate and vegetational change to carbon sequestered in the peatlands.

    Timing of Deglaciation in Northeastern US

    Understanding timing of deglaciation in northeastern US and its relationship to Greenland ice cores, sea level rise, and ocean temperature shifts.

    Climate Sensitivity

    Differences in climate sensitivity of planet earth during different time intervals since last ice age.
    Feedbacks such as vegetational change very important.

    Abrupt climate shifts

    Understanding relationship of terrestrial abrupt climate shifts of the past and their effects on forest and wetland vegeational change in various regions of the globe.  Younger Dryas cooling and Medieval Warming are examples.

    Drought

    Past droughts in the northeastern US are visible through forest shifts in species composition and increases in fire frequency.  We document past drought frequency and intensity and the importance of future droughts for urban areas of the northeast.
