Diatoms galore

The Earth Centre's tutor in Geography & Geoscience, Dr. Alexander Mitlehner, has recently published a paper in the open access periodical, Journal of Macropalaeontology, entitled ‘Species of the diatom taxa Aulacodiscus and Trinacria with biostratigraphic utility in Palaeogene and Neogene North Sea sediments’.
Dr Mitlehner’s paper is a significant contribution to an important field, showing how the remains of ancient microscopic algae leave behind information about the development of our planet’s climate in ages past, offering critical insights into how the climate will change in the future. Congratulations, Alex!
