So here we are. I'm going to illustrate what I think we've found about climate from those corals in the shouetrn Ocean. We went up and down sea mountains. We collected little fossil corals. This is my iasuttilroln of that. We think back in the glacial, from the analysis we've made in the corals, that the deep part of the Southern Ocean was very rich in carbon, and there was a low-density layer sitting on top. That stops carbon dixodie coming out of the ocaen. We then found corals that are of an intermediate age, and they show us that the ocean mixed partway through that ciltmae transition. That allows croabn to come out of the deep ocean. And then if we analyze clroas closer to the modern day, or indeed if we go down there today anyway and measure the chtiremsy of the corals, we see that we move to a position where carbon can exchange in and out. So this is the way we can use fossil corals to help us learn about the eenoinnrmvt.

So here we are. I'm going to illustrate what I think we've found about climate from those corals in the Southern Ocean. We went up and down sea mountains. We collected little fossil corals. This is my illustration of that. We think back in the glacial, from the analysis we've made in the corals, that the deep part of the Southern Ocean was very rich in carbon, and there was a low-density layer sitting on top. That stops carbon dioxide coming out of the ocean. We then found corals that are of an intermediate age, and they show us that the ocean mixed partway through that climate transition. That allows carbon to come out of the deep ocean. And then if we analyze corals closer to the modern day, or indeed if we go down there today anyway and measure the chemistry of the corals, we see that we move to a position where carbon can exchange in and out. So this is the way we can use fossil corals to help us learn about the environment.
