Niklas Hohmann, a student from our Master program, published a new statistical tool that allow to correct the effects of changing deposition rates on geological data. These deposition rates determine how much time it takes to form rocks of a given thickness, and can therefore alter our interpretation of paleobiological rates when examining this rock.
