Larry Vardiman, PhD – Atmospheric Science
Expertise: Catastrophic climate change; radioisotope dating
Movie focus: Catastrophic climate change and ice cores
Dr. Vardiman obtained his BS in Physics from the University of Missouri at Rolla, a BS in Meteorology from St. Louis University, and an MS and PhD in Atmospheric Science from Colorado State University.
He was Director and Editor of the RATE Project, a study on Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth. For the last 10 years of his research career he conducted numerical simulations of climate and weather during the ice age. He used conventional research models and data supplied by NASA and NOAA to study storms enhanced by warm oceans heated by catastrophic events of the Genesis Flood.
Dr. Vardiman retired from the Institute for Creation Research in 2012 after 30 years of research, writing, teaching, and speaking on creation with a particular emphasis on weather and climate before, during, and after the Genesis Flood. Prior to his full-time ministry in creation science he conducted 15 years of field research in cloud physics and weather modification for the U.S. Department of Interior, the U.S. Air Force, and Colorado State University.
He continues to conduct limited research, writing, and speaking in the Northwest. He also teaches part-time on campus and online at Shasta Bible College in Redding, CA.
