Noah T. Anderson

Visiting Lecturer in Earth and Climate Science


Earth and Climate Sciences

Carnegie Science Hall, Room 223


Noah Anderson is a geologist and geochemist that studies the climate and carbon cycle of the Paleozoic. Noah uses field observations, petrography, and isotope geochemistry (particularly carbon, oxygen, and “clumped” isotopes) to decode the physical, chemical, and biological information archived in carbonate rocks.

Presently, Noah’s research as a PhD candidate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology focuses on the climate impacts of carbon burial during the Mississippian Period as well as using isotopic measurements of fish, shark, and early mammal teeth to understand the effects of temperature on early animal evolution. At Bates, Noah will be teaching Earth’s Climate System (EACS 109) and Dynamical Climate (EACS 220).
