Tracking Global Climate Change: Microfossil Record of the Planetary Heat Pump
http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/fosrec/Loubere.html

Paul Loubere, Learning from the Fossil Record


This lesson plan integrates physics, biology, and geology to understand planetary processes that contribute to climate change through time. The plan includes a hands-on activity that demonstrates heat transfer as well as uses figures and charts to demonstrate how foraminifera (shelled microorganisms)can be used to interpret past climates.
