Geology and Climate Change

Azolla Biosystems provides geological data and paleontological evidence for the Cenozoic greenhouse to icehouse climatic shift that was triggered by the ‘Arctic Azolla Event’ 50 million years ago. The subsequent oceanographic and tectonic processes that accompanied the shift are fundamental for understanding our present icehouse world and the threat of anthropogenic climate change.

Azolla Biosystems Ltd provides scientific advice on Arctic geology and climate change to governments and policy makers.

Where appropriate, we work with a highly selected network of Associates who provide complementary expertise on all microfossil groups, plus other geological disciplines including geochemistry, sedimentology, sequence stratigraphy and seismic interpretation.
