B.Sc. - On Going
Krysten Serack is an Undergraduate student at Carleton University working on an Honors Thesis project in the Patterson Lab studying Crawford Lake, a candidate for the GSSP (Global Boundary Stratotype Section and Point) of the newly proposed Epoch the Anthropocene.
Krysten’s research is creating novel high-resolution photography and photo analysis methods to produce a timeline within Crawford lake and allow accurate dating of individual varves within the depositional sequence.
Serack’s current research aims to improve the analysis of laminated freeze cores for accurate timeline reconstruction and time series analysis through the creation of a new freeze core analysis protocol to allow for accurate core dating. Additionally, she will be assessing trends and periodicity in weather reflected in Crawford Lake, Ontario.
