Radiolarian Micropalaeontology: Examining Radiolaria heliozoa axiopoda 5 months ago   08:33

Professor Simon Haslett discusses examining radiolarian microfossils under the microscope. Radiolaria are marine single-celled organisms that possess a silica shell and are preserved in the fossil record. They are commonly examined using transmitted light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. Radiolaria can be used in stratigraphy to date layers of rock and sediment through geological time, and also to reconstruct past environments and establish palaeoclimate history. Simon Haslett is Professor of Physical Geography and Director of the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching at the University of Wales, Newport.

Hello, proffesor Simon. I'm Ardo the undergraduate student from Indonesia currently studying about Radiolaria. I have question, can we extract radiolaria from diatomite rocks? If so, how many HF concentration we should apply? Thank you.
please respond
