Media reports on research showing climate change has reversed 900 years of cooling in the Gulf of Maine – K. Kreutz

The Bangor Daily News and WMTW (Channel 8 in Portland) reported on a study co-authored by the University of Maine showing that climate change has reversed nearly a millennium of cooling in the Gulf of Maine over the past century. “Combining precisely dated geochemical data from the clam shells with state-of-the-art climate models provides a powerful method for understanding climate change in the Gulf of Maine. We can see how local conditions are influenced by large-scale patterns through time,” said Karl Kreutz, co-author of the study, director of the School of Earth and Climate Sciences and professor in the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine.
