100 Million Years of Climate Change

Reconstructing Earth’s Past from Seafloor Mud

Thursday, September 30 @ 4:00 – 5:00 pm

  • Online Presentation
  • Free admission; Registration required

How do we know what Earth’s climate was like millions of years ago? What can ancient evidence tell us about our planet’s future? Join Daniel Gaskell to explore the global quest to piece together Earth’s climate history using septillions of fossilized microorganisms buried under the sea floor. And he’ll give us a look at the fate of Antarctica in a warmer world.

Daniel Gaskell is a PhD candidate in the Yale Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences. His work focuses on understanding the behavior of extinct microorganisms to reconstruct ancient climate.
