Researchers believe the ocean oxygenation occurred over a few tens of thousands of years, a very brief period in Earth’s geological history.
The discovery of lead in the Bay of Bengal launches a tortuous journey involving lead isotopes, turmeric and science heroes.
Using a novel technique, researchers uncover secrets hidden deep below the surface of our planet.
Thanks to new funding, MagLab geochemist Jeremy Owens will learn more about ancient climate change, extinctions, oxygen levels, and new species to understand future climate impacts.
Some manmade chemicals feature bonds so strong they could last forever. And that's a life-threatening problem.
Using the world's most accurate molecular scale, a former astronaut wanna-be is studying Titan's hazy atmosphere, which resembles the ancient chemistry that once surrounded our own planet.
New study resolves a longstanding paleoclimate mystery.
Using powerful instruments at the National MagLab, scientists discovered that older dissolved organics from deforested areas were more energy-rich, and potentially more harmful to the planet.
In findings that could shed light on current climate changes, researchers find conclusive evidence linking rising sea levels and lowering oxygen levels to decimation of marine species.
MagLab data provide compelling evidence that extensive oxygenation took place in the ocean millions of years before the atmosphere’s “Great Oxidation Event.”
