Paleoceanography, focusing on the geochemistry of sediment on the ocean floor to understand past changes in the Earth’s climate
Dr. Samantha Bova is a paleoceanographer and paleoclimatologist, meaning she researches how the earth’s climate has changed over time. Her work has been helping to solve a big mystery in climate science about why models of climate change in the past 12,000 years have not always lined up with available temperature data.
