Description:

Students work in pairs to explore and synthesize key paleoceanographic evidence for the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM)as found in marine sediment cores collected and analyzed during Ocean Drilling Program Leg 208 (Walvis Ridge). Students produce a poster in which they neatly organize the data (calcium carbonate, carbon isotopic values, core log information) and core imagery and share their interpretation of what happened during this major event.
