Quantitative modeling of the rise in atmospheric oxygen
(University of Washington, 2008-08-01) - Other,
The abrupt rise of molecular oxygen in Earth’s atmosphere approximately 2.4 billion years ago was perhaps the most profound event in Earth’s history after the evolution of life itself. Biogeochemical cycles in Earth’s ...
Modeling feedbacks between a boreal forest and the planetary boundary layer
(2008-08-12) - Journal article,
The atmosphere and biosphere interact strongly in the planetary boundary layer. Understanding the mechanisms controlling the coupled atmosphere-biosphere system allows improved scaling between observations at the stand ...
Indosinian high-strain deformation for the Yunkaidashan tectonic belt, south China : Kinematics and 40Ar/39Ar geochronological constraints
(2007-12-14) - Journal article,
Structural and 40Ar/39Ar data from the Yunkaidashan Belt document kinematic and tectonothermal characteristics of early Mesozoic Indosinian orogenesis in the southern part of the South China Block. The Yunkaidashan Belt ...
The Irrawaddy River sediment flux to the Indian Ocean : the original nineteenth-century data revisited
(2007-11) - Journal article,
The Irrawaddy (Ayeyarwady) River of Myanmar is ranked as having the fifth-largest suspended load and the fourth-highest total dissolved load of the world's rivers, and the combined Irrawaddy and Salween ( Thanlwin) system ...
Mg structural state in coral aragonite and implications for the paleoenvironmental proxy
(2008-04-19) - Journal article,
Thermodynamic calculations and inorganic precipitation experiments indicate a relationship between aragonite Mg/Ca and water temperature. This offers a route to reconstruct seawater temperatures from fossil corals. Fundamental ...
