Dr Hull Presentation

 When Doctor Hull was talking to us about what she studies, I found it pretty interesting that she studies the period of time through the Ocean. By traveling in a boat and  a drill come down from the boat to drill holes in the ocean floors, they studies Foraminifera (Forams) that come out stuck to the drills.  what I found also interesting was the when we burned fossil fuels , the co2 goes not just in the air but it also goes in the ocean, making the PH water level rise.  killing small organism by dissolving their shells by ocean acidifications for example pteropod's.
