Ben Freiberg

M.S. Student, CEOAS

Education & Positions Held:

B.A., Geosciences and Environmental Science, Skidmore College (2016) M.S., Geology, College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, Oregon State University (exp. 2019)

Research Interests:

My research interests focus on stratigraphy and geochronology of marine (sediment) magnetic records in the northern North Atlantic. In particular, my Masters research uses particle-size specific magnetic techniques to study sediment provenance and ocean currents. An overarching theme in this project is to track development of the Greenland Ice Sheet throughout the Holocene (past ~12,000 years), in relation to ocean circulation. The broader objective remains to enhance paleomagnetic techniques as an environmental proxy in the North Atlantic.

Other Interests:

The remainder of my time is spent in the outdoors, where I enjoy tromping around Oregon’s streams and forests.
