    About This Project

    Abundant throughout the world’s oceans, foraminifera are single-celled amoeboid protists. Their shells, called tests, are continually preserved as fossils in accumulating sediment. Our study aims to provide a better understanding of modern patterns of benthic foraminiferal fauna and abundance in the Arctic -- a region that plays a major role in the global climate system. Funding for this project will enable us to accurately date sediment samples from a core collected off southeast Greenland.
