Temperatures on Earth in the past - using oxygen isotopes

Today's new ELI+ activity is 'The oxygen isotope sweet simulation; demonstrating how the oxygen isotope proxy records past Earth temperatures'.

Using coloured sweets, the activity simulates how the relative proportions of 16O and 18O can indicate past Earth temperatures.
Many activities for students aged 16 plus can be found on our website.
