Q&A with earth sciences professor Erich Osterberg

(03/26/19 6:00am)

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.
