Archaeology and Oceanography of the San Diego Coastline

Professor Isabel Rivera-Collazo

This lecture will describe a new research project that has two goals: to investigate the local impacts of climate change as seen from a long-term perspective, and to become a local source of student and community training and engagement. The plan is to work from La Jolla to San Dieguito, investigating past landscapes and evaluating sea-level changes.

Instructor: Isabel Rivera-Collazo is Assistant Professor of Biological, Ecological, and Human Adaptations to Climate Change at UC San Diego’s Department of Anthropology and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. She is an environmental archeologist who studies coastal and marine processes, maritime culture, and climate change. Her research focuses on resilience and adaptation, investigating how people have responded to climatic and environmental change in the past and on what decisions enhance or reduce adaptive success. She earned an MS degree in the Palaeoecology of Human Societies and a PhD in Environmental Archaeology from the Institute of Archaeology, University College London.
