*The dissertation topic on millennial scaled droughts published at that page in relation to my past work there is not accurate, but I appreciate the spirit in which that was written.  I originally entered the program to explore space dust impacts on ice ages and that applies roughly to a hundred-thousand year cycle.  Upon direction by my advisor at that time, Dr. Harjit Ahluwalia, I steered towards more contemporary climate topics.  I have focused since that time upon climate records of the last century and climate forecasts into the next several years to decades    😀
