October 31, 2013
Yair Rosenthal of Rutgers University, Braddock Linsley of Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, and Delia W. Oppo of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution used the shells of tiny, single-celled, bottom-dwelling foraminifera found in sediment cores to reconstruct the Pacific Ocean's heat content over the last 10,000 years. Their paper has been published in Science.
