Scott Starratt, Ph.D.

Scott is a Research Geologist who uses diatoms, chrysophytes, testate amoebae, and foraminifera to reconstruct the past environments of lakes, estuaries, and the ocean. In addition to these biological proxies, he uses sediment geochemistry (biogenic silica, inorganic geochemistry, grain size) data to provide a more complete picture of paleoenvironmental conditions.
