The development of quantitative estimates of past temperature changes is one of the principal goals of paleoclimatology. Such estimates not only reveal the state of the Earth in highly altered climates but also provide fundamental insights into Earth system sensitivity (the amount the planet warms when CO2 increases, accounting for ‘slow’ feedbacks; Lunt et al., 2009). Traditionally, paleotemperature estimates have relied on the distribution or chemical composition of hard fossils, such as the… CONTINUE READING
