Earlier this summer the Guardian newspaper in the United Kingdom ran a photo essay about scientists working hard to sort out climate change questions. One of the people featured is Wooster professor of geology Greg Wiles in a classic photo first run in National Geographic.
Wooster's own Greg Wiles looking buff as he cores a log in Alaska for dendrochronological and paleoclimate research (from the May 14, 2009, issue of the Guardian).
This photograph (and a description of Greg’s work) is now included in a new book titled Climate Change: Picturing the Science by Gavin Schmidt and Joshua Wolfe.

Wooster geologists Terry Workman and Greg Wiles are joined by Alena Giesche (Middlebury College), Jessa Moser and Tom Lowell (U. Cincinnati) on Alaska’ Kenai Peninsula undertaking paleoclimate research. We are coring lakes in collaboration with The Kenai National Wildlife Refuge to get a better understanding of climate change and precipitation changes since the Ice Age.
