Nicolas Thibault

I am primarily a micropaleontologist and stratigrapher. My main interests are (1) Precise dating, large-scale correlations, and improvement of the Geologic Time Scale, (2) Paleoclimate and Paleoenvironments, (3) Evolution of marine life. As a micropaleontologist, I am a specialist in calcareous nannofossils. As a stratigrapher, I am specialized in cyclostratigraphy and carbon-isotope stratigraphy. I focused a large part of my career on the Cretaceous Period but I've also worked more recently on the Early Jurassic, Late Triassic, Early Paleozoic (Cambrian to Silurian of Baltica) and Eocene.
