Professor Logan Brenner

In December 2020, climate research magazine Paleoceanography and Paleoclimatology published an academic article co-researched by environmental science professor Logan Brenner

For the project, titled "Coral Record of Younger Dryas Chronozone Warmth on the Great Barrier Reef," Brenner and colleagues studied the progression of the Great Barrier Reef's sea surface temperature (SST), and considered those results against the reef's history of "sea level, reef sequence, and coralgal reef assemblage." By studying the reef's varying responses to glacial periods in Earth's history, like the Younger Dryas Chronozone, Brenner's paleoclimatology research offers new understanding for how our climate will behave in the future.
