(A) and (E) correctly introduce the subordinate clause, which refers to 'a group of scientists'. 'what the types ... were present' is awkward. (A) is the best answer! cheers

E has issues with parallelism -

the levels of calcium carbonate and what the types of fossilized algae

A resolves those issues -

the levels of calcium carbonate and the types of fossilized algae
