OCEANs worldwide


This artwork is a selection of foraminifera found in all our oceans. 

Foraminifera are a deep-sea life form and hard to discern by the naked eye (size of a sand grain). They are very sensitive to physical and chemical environmental changes and therefore, are ideal indicators for paleoceanographic and paleoclimatic history of the Earth.

They can tell us the sea level, temperature, and ocean conditions of our Earth millions of years ago.
