Radiolarian Micropalaeontology: Analysing Radiolarian Microfossil Data

By Prof. Simon K. Haslett and Newport University of Wales


Professor Simon Haslett discusses analysing radiolarian microfossil data. Radiolaria are marine single-celled organisms that possess a silica shell and are preserved in the fossil record. Radiolarian data can be analysed by individual species plots/graphs, or through numerical and statistical analysis of assemblage datasets. Such data can be used in stratigraphy to date layers of rock and sediment through geological time, and also to reconstruct past environments and establish palaeoclimate history.
