Terestrial Record of Climate Change (TREC)

Understanding how and why the terrestrial environment has changed provides society with a better understanding of:

  • how the environment operates today
  • the range and rate of change possible in the future
  • the impact of human activities on the environment

The TREC program provides students with opportunities to conduct independent research. Research projects on a variety of levels are available for undergraduate and graduate students.
