Abstract

The Paleocene-Eocene thermal maximum (PETM) is a
geologically brief episode of carbon cycle change and
climatic warming that marks the Paleocene-Eocene
boundary. Despite its recognition in dozens of
stratigraphic sections and ocean-bottom drill cores
worldwide and two decades of intensive research,
many important questions about the rate and nature of
PETM global change remain unanswered. These
questions are central both to understanding the PETM
as a pivotal event in the evolution of the Cenozoic
climate and ecosystems and to interpreting it’s
significant with respect to ongoing global climate and
environmental change. I will discuss recent and
ongoing work led by the University of Utah that is
seeking to fill these knowledge gaps through the
