Earth sciences professor Erich Osterberg grew up with an interest in weather and climate change. While completing his master’s degree at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand, Osterberg conducted field research and studied ice core samples and their relationship to climate change. His most recent research on ice core samples from Mt. Hunter in Alaska led him to compelling evidence of global warming. Aside from research, Osterberg also furthers his passion for climate change study by teaching EARS 2, “Evolution of Earth and Life.” Since coming to Dartmouth as a post-doctoral fellow in 2007, Osterberg has taught EARS 2, EARS 14, “Meteorology” and upper-level courses in the earth sciences department.

This term, he is teaching Creative Writing 20, “Intermediate Fiction I” and the first-year seminar English 7.46, “Belonging, Migration, Exile.”
