Toarcian Mercury Anomalies Record Terrestrial Disturbance Rather Than Volcanic Activity
Mercury (Hg) enrichments in ancient sedimentary successions are currently used to directly link the emplacement of large igneous provinces (LIPs) to environmental change and biological turnover in the geological record. ...
Tracking Marine Deoxygenation during the Cambrian SPICE Event Using Thallium Isotopes
The stable isotopic composition of thallium (ε205Tl) in organic-rich, sulfidic sediments has recently emerged as a new proxy for tracking changes in global marine redox conditions in the geologic ...
Investigating the Sulphur Cycle during the End-Triassic Mass Extinction from Panthalassa
The end-Triassic mass extinction (~201 Ma), one of the “Big Five” mass extinctions of the Phanerozoic,is estimated to have resulted in the loss of ~80%of known marine species. This interval is also ...
Environmental Divers of Decoupled Marine Sulfate Oxygen and Sulfur Isotope Trends during the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event
The Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event was a major carbon cycle perturbation associated with two pulses of extinction and widespread environmental change. Studies of the biogeochemical sulfur cycle provide insight into the ...
Atmosphere-ocean oxygen and productivity dynamics during the Cambrian explosion
Large, motile animals proliferated during the Cambrian explosion,540–515 million years ago,and this period has been associated with both rising and declining O2levels on Earth [1–3]. To explore this conundrum, we reconstructed ...
Sulfur cycling within subduction zones: Insights from exhumed mafic and ultramafic slab
Subduction zones significantly control the geochemical cycling and elemental transfer between the surficial andinternal reservoirs of the Earth. Amongst the most hydrophile elements sulfur is the fifth most abundant element ...
Evaluating Records of Environmental Change and Mass Extinctions during the Early Paleozoic
The interval between the Cambrian ‘explosion’ and the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event (GOBE) is marred by biotic turmoil.Several mass extinction events have been recognized throughout the Cambrian,with ...
