Andrew Kleinberg

EOAS extends its congratulations to Andrew Kleinberg, on being awarded the Charles A. & June R.P. Ross Research Award from the Geological Society of America.

Andrew is working with Dr. Seth Young for his Master’s Thesis examining the paleoredox conditions spanning a major biotic crisis in the early Silurian period, the Ireviken Event. He is using geochemical proxies to investigate environmental changes that triggered this global extinction event in marine organisms 431 million years ago.
