Whether in the context of off-shore oil exploration or pure research, the oceans of the geological past have never been of more compelling interest. The recent expansion in oceanographic studies has produced a burgeoning of data on ancient ocean circulation, climate, bathymetry, chemistry, biology, and temperature data that now should be considered in a more general geological and paleontological framework.

Thomas Schopf has produced a remarkable synthesis of these data that provides any earth scientist with the background necessary to appreciate the history of the ancient oceans. Each of his seven chapters includes a summary of modern conditions, a major section on methods for determining ancient patterns, and a summary of each oceanographic factor over geological time.

Paleoceanography will serve as an important resource for paleontologists and for a much broader audience of earth and ocean scientists, petroleum geologists, and stratigraphers.

Speaking with SpeakOut Boston

We continue our celebration of Pride Month by talking with some of the speakers who volunteer with SpeakOUT Boston. They share their stories with a variety of audiences to foster a better understanding of the LGBTQ+ community, so we thought we’d ask them some questions of our own.
