A Stable Isotopic Record for the Badlands National Park was obtained across the Eocene-Oligocene Transition (Greenhouse to Icehouse global climate change). The isotopic record indicates changes in temperature and aridity and allows for direct comparision of a local continental climate response to a global climate change event. Effect on regional biota are also described. This presentation was given at the GSA North-Central/South-Central Combined Meeting 2010.
