Professor Herbert is an oceanographer and paleoclimatologist, someone who deciphers the climate of the earth’s past. Geological studies offer us a unique perspective to sort out how much of the climate change we’ve recently experienced may be natural and how much due to human activity. It also allows us to look at natural “climate experiments” that the earth has already run for insights into what we may experience in the coming century of climate change. Past, Present, and Future — it’s all Geology.
Tim Herbert received his B.S. in Geological Sciences from Yale College in 1980 (Magna Cum Laude), and his Ph.D. from Princeton University in Geological Sciences, in 1997. He has been recognized for his research in the area of Earth Systems History and paleoceanography, earning him a leadership role in the paleoclimate community. His research has led to a better understanding of the history of global change. Within the University community, he has worked hard to develop strong links between the Department of Geological Sciences and Environmental Studies, the Environmental Change Initiative and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology groups. He teaches broad-reaching courses such as “Ecology and Climate”, “Ocean Biogeochemistry”, and “The Enigma of Warm Climates in the Geological Record.”

Archaeology at a Wonder of the World: Brown at Petra 2010
Brown archaeologists have been working for decades at the ‘rose-red’ city of Petra in southern Jordan, a site recently voted a modern ‘Wonder of the World’. But many questions still remain about just how this place came to be, and how people lived and worked within it. In 2010, the Brown team dug, walked, mapped, and analyzed everything from Paleolithic stone tools to present-day garbage, in a new attempt to understand the mystery that is Petra.

Featuring Professor Susan Alcock
Director, Artemis A.W. and Martha Sharp Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World
Joukowsky Family Professor in Archaeology Professor of Classics
Sue Alcock is a classical archaeologist, with interests in the material culture of the eastern Mediterranean and western Asia, particularly in Hellenistic and Roman times. Much of her research to date has revolved around themes of landscape, imperialism, sacred space, and memory. Her fieldwork has, until recently, taken the form of regional investigations in Greece, but she is now involved with the Vorotan Project, an international collaborative effort in southern Armenia.
Sue Alcock was trained, at Yale and at the University of Cambridge, in the field of classical archaeology — that is the archaeology of the circum-Mediterranean world. Her research interests chiefly target the material culture of the eastern Mediterranean and western Asia, particularly in Hellenistic and Roman times. She has also worked on the long-term history of Messenia (southern Greece), the homeland of the famed ‘helots’ of antiquity. Much of her research to date has revolved around themes of landscape, imperialism, sacred space, and memory. Her work attempts to straddle the usual divide of ‘historian’ and ‘archaeologist.’]]>
