A Short Story Collection from Eocene Sand Tiger shark teeth: a tale of paleoclimate, paleoceanography, and paleoecology  -- by Dr. Sora Kim, University of California, Merced

The Eocene marks a period of climate transition from greenhouse to icehouse conditions and is often invoked as an analogy for modern climate change. Sand Tiger shark teeth provide insight to paleoclimate and paleoceanography in their geochemistry, while their distribution and morphology are indicators of paleoecology. The Eocene fossil record of Sand Tiger sharks range from the Arctic to Antarctic and span brackish to marine waters. This short story collection will include a salinity reconstruction of the Eocene Arctic Ocean, an environmental reconstruction for a proto-Drake Passage, and an exploration of ecological plasticity in ancient Sand Tigers.
