abstract
With glaciers melting and species becoming extinct, the Human Race contemplates its affects on a fragile system. While we may understand some chemical interactions within this system, comparatively little is known about how our climate fluctuates. A Columbian mammoth found on private land in Converse County, Wyoming can yield information that will help clarify some of these variations. The goal of this research project, analyzing the stable isotopes of oxygen, carbon and collagen found in the tusk of “Dee the Mammoth”, can help in this clarification. The research that has been completed at the University of Wyoming’s Stable Isotope Laboratory can bring a larger climatic picture into greater focus.
