Janae and Juhi Introduction


In the Oceanic Invertebrate Paleontology lab, we are studying climate change by examining single celled, deep sea microfossils called foraminifera. The foraminifera is collected from various locations in the ocean by inserting large cylindrical drills vertically 4 kilometers deep into the ocean floor to sample mud from the Cenozoic Era. This helps us explain the differences between climates throughout Earth's history.
