This started out as a blog for the NSF-funded project studying climate, fire & forest history in Mongolia led by Neil Pederson of Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and Columbia University, Amy Hessl of West Virginia University, Peter Brown of Rocky Mountain Tree Ring Research and Baatarbileg Nachin, head of the Department of Forest Science in the School of Biology and Biotechnology at the National University of Mongolia.

We will report here on the observations, trials, tribulations and results of our project. As of August 2011, we have completed all fieldwork. Results are emerging!

Update July 2013

We are now transitioning this blog to report more on our new project, “Pluvials, Droughts, Energetics, and the Mongol Empire”, which is again funded by the Dynamics Coupled Human-Natural Systems branch of  NSF-funded project to study the climatic and energetic context for the 13th century Mongol Empire. Amy Hessl of West Virginia University is the Principal Investigator while Neil Pederson, Baatarbileg Nachin, Hanchin Tian, Nicola Di Cosmo are all co-PIs on this project.

  1. Hello
    My name is Kate Frenson and I recently found your website about Mongolia. Your website looks really impressive and interesting. You give a lot of possibilities learn more about this country. I thought that you could be interested in adding more basic info about culture of Mongolia. This could be beneficial and make your website more visible among internet, even more popular. You could add more data or just link to other website (like this: http://www.everyculture.com/Ma-Ni/Mongolia.html ). Please let me know what do you think about that.
    Thank you,
    Kate Frenson
