Christopher Hill

Professor and Associate Dean
Department of Anthropology, Graduate College

Christopher Hill recently presented a paper at the 24th biennial meeting of the American Quaternary Association (AMQUA), held in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  The theme of the conference was climate and environmental change within the context of the definition of the Anthropocene.

Hill’s paper, “Radiocarbon chronostratigraphy and stable isotopes of a late Quaternary sedimentary sequence, Bull Mountain, southwest Montana,” proposed an age-model for the last 12,000 years of environmental change along the eastern front of the northern Rocky Mountains. Hill recently was elected to serve a second term on the executive committee and board of directors for AMQUA, a national organization focused on environmental change over the last 2.6 million years.
