How do paleoclimatologists learn and understand Earth’s ancient climates and their variability over time?
The answer to this question relies heavily on Foraminifera, which are single-celled marine life forms that provide humanity with a continuous record of Earth’s temperature fluctuations.
With support from the Heising-Simons Foundation, the popular educational YouTube channel MinuteEarth has produced a short, snappy video explaining the important role Foraminifera play in understanding the past and future of our earth’s climate. Supporting experts in articulating and disseminating evidence-based scientific findings is one of the cornerstones of the Foundation’s Science program.
