Henry Pollack is a Professor of Geophysics at the University of Michigan, where he has taught at every level of the curriculum, from introductory courses for non-scientists to advanced graduate seminars. His current research activities focus on global climate change, as recorded by the temperatures in the rocks beneath the Earth's surface. Subsurface temperatures comprise an archive of past climate that reveals what Earth was like in the pre-industrial era, thus helping scientists to assess the human impact on Earth's climate. As Chair of the International Heat Flow Commission he coordinated a worldwide research program into geothermal evidence of global climate change.
