Thomas Crowley graduated from Brown University with a degree in
marine geology and is now a professor in the Division of Earth and
ocean Sciences at Duke University. For a number of years he has
been interested in comparing climate model simulations of past climates
against observations on time scales ranging from decadal to tectonic.
Most recently he has been involved in examining the recent global
warming trend within the context of climate change over the last
few thousand years in order to place the warming, and explanations
for it, in a longer-term perspective.
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is dedicated to research and education to advance understanding of the ocean and its interaction with the Earth system, and to communicating this understanding for the benefit of society. Learn more »
