Foraminifera - climate storytellers

There are probably many who have stood by the seashore and looked out over the sea, impressed by powerfulness and the feeling of infinity. It is difficult to imagine that there's a whole world out below sea level, with depths deeper than the Himalayas are high. Here we also find our most important environmental archives. In the seabed sediments, in the mud at the bottom, there are a variety of micro- fossils that can tell us about ancient climate and marine environments.
