Take a look at some of our recent research projects.
Our group will give several presentation at the Nordic Winter Meeting at DTU in Lyngby, Denmark Wednesday Jan 10, 2018 10.00-11.00 Student poster presentations Magnus A. R, Harding “Surface analyses of fossil leaves” Julius C. Havsteen “The Silurian Lau event – testing plant weathering as driver for ocean anoxia and animal extinction” Thursday Jan 11, […]
Beginning in January 2018, Magnus A. R. Harding will continue working in the group now as a research assistant. Magnus’ main focus will be to extend ongoing studies of the chemical composition of fossil plant leaves.
A new paper on the redox conditions in the oceans after the Sturtian and before the Marinoan ‘Snowball’ glaciations is now press in Precambrian Research. Our results suggest that oceans remained largely anoxic after the Sturtian glaciation and that something else triggered oxygenation of the Ediacaran oceans after the Marinoan glaciation. This ‘something’ could be due to the way animals affect the global […]
