Most up to date climate record for the past 66 million years published

An international team - including scientists from the University of Edinburgh - GeoSciences - have compiled and analysed a comprehensive dataset obtained from sediment cores from the ocean floor - unravelling 66 million years of climate history.

🌍 Palaeoclimate research is always concerned with finding parallels in the past to our current climate.

🧐Scientists want to understand what climate conditions existed in the past, what processes lay behind them, and how they proceeded.

📢They say, the time from 66 to 34 million years ago, when the planet was significantly warmer than it is today, is especially interesting.

Kind regards
