Description: 

Application of geochemistry to problems concerning the geologic record of climate change, history of the oceans and atmosphere, and interactions between the environment and life. Schrag studies climate and climate change over the broadest range of Earth history. He is particularly interested in how information on climate change from the geologic past can lead to better understanding of anthropogenic climate change in the future. In addition to his work on geochemistry and climatology, Schrag studies energy technology and policy, including carbon capture and storage and low-carbon synthetic fuels.
