Description of Symposium
Microfossils are one of the best tools for detecting changes in aquatic environments; this is because outcrops are not usually available in submerged areas, and cores are required to study past changes. Macrofossils are generally rare in cores due to the small diameter of section; however, cores from most aquatic environments will contain sufficient numbers of one or several microfossil...
