Thanks to grant # U.S. National Science Foundation ANT-1048343, our group was selected to study about 700 of the recently-acquired sediment samples in Antarctica, covering ~9 regions and geological time frames ranging from the Paleocene to today. The samples were processed for palynological analyses and the slides are curated at the LSU CENEX center.
