Laboratory for Paleoclimatology and Climatology
The LPC is a laboratory in the Department of Geography at the University of Ottawa (Ottawa, Canada). We are involved in the analysis and modeling of climate changes and their impacts on ecosystems. The emphasis of our work is the analysis of the past (the fossil record) as a way to better understand the present and the future. Our lab is unique in that we combine work typically done by several specialist groups: the gathering and analysis of new paleoecological and paleolimnological data, especially from lake sediment cores; the statistical analysis of databases of environmental change, with an emphasis of spatial analysis; and the modeling of environmental processes. One of the particular interests of the physical geographers in our department is northern Canada and the Arctic and much of the new data we are collecting comes from this region.
