Salt crystals contain minute drops of ancient ocean water that can provide valuable information about the Earth’s climate conditions from millions of years ago. By analysing magnesium and oxygen isotopes in these small drops of water trapped in the salt, scientists are able to collect valuable insight into Earth’s history. This knowledge can paint a clearer picture of the geological development of our planet from its very beginnings.
