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 ...
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 ...
