The CycloAstro Project is a unique interdisciplinary collaboration that integrates science from paleoclimatology, geophysics and astronomy with five research projects and the early career Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Justice (IDEJ) CycloCohort Program to trace Solar System evolution, Earth-Moon dynamics, and Earth’s paleoclimate system with state-of-the-art analysis and modeling. The goal of the project is to show how it is possible to acquire fundamental new empirical knowledge of Solar System dynamics and Earth system sensitivity from the sedimentary record that will allow tests of astronomical models and overcome a ~50-million-year-before-present (Ma) limit of predictability imposed by chaos.

Working with scientists, as well as the science

Our Philosophy

We see equity as a process, and that working along this process is the basis on which the best science is done. We aim to center the experience of the scientists through an equity lens, such that their careers can be sustainable. We invite you to meet our team, read about our projects and use the resources we share with the greater scientific community.
