Stefan Schouten, Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ) and Utrecht University, has made an original contribution to the paleoenvironmental reconstructions by developing organic geochemical proxies for the marine paleotemperature. He has developed methods to reconstruct key climate parameters, for example the temperature of seawater in the distant past. He plays a role of major significance in the international field of organic geochemistry.
