    When it comes to climate-change science, Skidmore students are working with faculty on a broad range of research. Among the projects this year: studying an ancient stalagmite to learn about the effects of volcanic eruptions and storms on the decline of Mexico's Maya civilization, analyzing coal ash from as far away as Calcutta to determine how it behaves in the atmosphere, and calibrating a tool that uses satellite data to determine how carbon sinks deep into the ocean.
