  • Planetary science and exploration in the deep subsurface: results from the MINAR Program, Boulby Mine, UK 

    Payler, Samuel J.; Biddle, Jennifer F.; Coates, Andrew J.; Cousins, Claire R.; Cross, Rachel E.; Cullen, David C.; Downs, Michael T.; Direito, Susana O. L.; Edwards, Thomas; Gray, Amber L.; Genis, Jac; Gunn, Matthew; Hansford, Graeme M.; Harkness, Patrick; Holt, John; Josset, Jean-Luc; Li, Xuan; Lees, David S.; Lim, Darlene S. S.; Mchugh, Melissa; Mcluckie, David; Meehan, Emma; Paling, Sean M.; Souchon, Audrey; Yeoman, Louise; Cockell, Charles S. (2016-04-20) - Journal article
    The subsurface exploration of other planetary bodies can be used to unravel their geological history and assess their habitability. On Mars in particular, present-day habitable conditions may be restricted to the subsurface. ...
  • A new boron isotope-pH calibration for Orbulina universa, with implications for understanding and accounting for ‘vital effects’ 

    Henehan, Michael J.; Foster, Gavin L.; Bostock, Helen C.; Greenop, Rosanna; Marshall, Brittney J.; Wilson, Paul A. (2016-11-15) - Journal article
    Boron isotope ratios, as measured in planktic foraminifera, can be a useful tracer of past ocean pH, and hence help to discern the concentration of CO2 in the ancient atmosphere. However, different species of planktic ...
  • UV surface environment of Earth-like planets orbiting FGKM stars through geological evolution 

    Rugheimer, S.; Segura, A.; Kaltenegger, L.; Sasselov, D. (2015-06-12) - Journal article
    The UV environment of a host star affects the photochemistry in the atmosphere, and ultimately the surface UV environment for terrestrial planets and therefore the conditions for the origin and evolution of life. We model ...

  • Controls on the transport of oceanic heat to Kangerdlugssuaq Glacier, east Greenland 

    Cowton, Tom; Sole, Andrew; Nienow, Peter; Slater, Donald; Wilton, David; Hanna, Edward (2016-10-05) - Journal article
    Greenland's marine-terminating glaciers may be sensitive to oceanic heat, but the fjord processes controlling delivery of this heat to glacier termini remain poorly constrained. Here we use a three-dimensional numerical ...
