Dr. Dutton's primary research interest concerns the behavior of ice sheet dynamics and sea level change during previous interglacial periods to provide empirical constraints on future sea level rise. This line of work combines field studies (mapping and facies analysis), geochronology (of corals, submerged speleothems, etc), geochemistry and petrography, with geophysical models of glacial isostasy to understand the relationship between local (or relative) sea level and global (or eustatic) sea level change.
Dr. Dutton also has on ongoing interest in understanding the dynamics of climate during greenhouse conditions and during rapid climate transitions, which is of great interest within the context of present and future climate change. This research stream focuses on establishing paleoclimatic benchmarks with multiple proxies, probing the fidelity of various environmental proxies, and integrating this knowledge with climate models.
