    Niemi,Tina
      Geosciences  
      I am a Quaternary geologist who specializes in geoarchaeology, sedimentology, and active tectonics. My research focuses on paleoenvironmental reconstruction of archaeological sites and coastal settings, characterization of present and past hurricane and tsunami deposition, and research in paleoseismology and archaeoseismology. As a field geologist, my students and I use the interpretation of aerial imagery, the collection of topographic data using digital mapping techniques, and geophysical surveys to produce detailed geologic, geomorphic, and paleoenvironmental maps. Stratigraphic data and analyses of sediment samples and artifacts collected from outcrops, trenching, excavating, and coring provide evidence to build a deeper understanding of the history and nature of tectonic, climatic, and anthropogenic environmental change through time. I direct the GAPS (Geoarchaeology, Paleoseismology, and Sedimentology) Lab. Students under my supervision have done research in México, The Bahamas, India, Jordan, Russia, and the New Madrid Seismic zone, Arkansas.
