Project Overview

Jen (left) and Adriane (right) in Tartu, Estonia

This website was created by two geoscientists, Adriane and Jen, with the help of several of our friends and colleagues. We built this site to provide the general public with a basic understanding of our most important geologic concepts, including those that are important for understanding climate change and evolution.

Time Scavengers is a collaborative project that is continually updated as an outside project by the collaborator team. Read our biography page to learn more about the lead developers and collaborator team.

Although this site is curated by scientists who study geology, paleontology, climate change, and evolution it is not a formal peer reviewed entity. We do have internal review and incorporate site feedback that is submitted through our contact form.


Increasing accessibility of science and scientists through sharing our personal stories and scientific endeavors.


Time Scavengers will continue to provide accessible and digestible information about climate change and evolutionary theory to the public through expanded informational static pages and blogs. We will develop best practices to better communicate science with the public in the digital realm through peer-reviewed publications. Continual support of students, early career researchers, and avocational scientists will continue through both financial support and increased visibility on our blog pages.
