Maribeth Murray

Maribeth Murray is the Executive Director of the Arctic Institute of North America and Professor of Anthropology and Archaeology at the University of Calgary. She sometimes considers herself an historical ecologist and to that end has worked to develop proxy data bearing on Holocene-era climate and marine ecosystem change in arctic North America. In addition to biogeochemical studies of archaeofauna, she is also interested in the use of historic ship’s logs as a source of information on past climate, weather, sea ice, and marine species biogeography. The integration of historic and prehistoric proxy data into regional climate models is a particular focus as is the use of archaeological and historic information to establish baselines that can inform management and adaptation, and ecosystem restoration and conservation biology in a changing Arctic.
