Elleon Thomas (Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA; Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT, USA) is a micropaleontologist/paleoceanographer who investigates the impact of changes in environment and climate on living organisms, focusing on benthic foraminiferal assemblages and trace element and stable isotope composition of their shells. Environments of study range from coastal salt marshes to the deep sea, time periods from Late Cretaceous – Recent, with emphases on Paleogene warm periods.

Steve Barker (Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK): is interested in all aspects of Quaternary climate science, from changes in ocean circulation to variations in atmospheric CO2. He is particularly interested in so-called abrupt climate change and how this interacts with orbital-timescale variations in Earth’s climate. Steve’s background is in paleoceanography, but he is also interested in synthesizing records from other climate archives, including ice cores and speleothems.
