Greenhouse gasses course

Our goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are paleoceanographic proxies - focused, and on a wide range of subjects related to marine sediments and foraminiferal research. We aim to foster learning, inspiration and wonder - and provoke conversations with early career scientists.
