Dr. Ken Miller is a stratigrapher and micropaleontologist interested in climate and sea-level changes over the past 180 million years. Our mid-Atlantic coastal plain and nearshore drilling project (Ocean Drilling Program Legs 150 AX, 174AX and integrated Ocean Drilling Program Expedition 313) has returned a records of sea-level changes from 100-10 million years ago. His efforts have provided exceptional records of some of the greatest hits of Earth history: the Cenonmanian-Turonian Ocean Anoxic event (ca. 93 Ma), the Cretaceous/Paleogene (ca. 66 Ma) mass extinction, the Paleocene/Eocene thermal maximum (56 Ma), the coming of the Icehouse (34 Ma), the development of a permanent Antarctic ice sheet (15-13 Ma), and the great melting of the Pliocene (ca. 3 Ma).
