New facts about the young Earth's atmosphere

New facts about the young Earth's atmosphere Facts

British researchers say that the development of complex life on Earth was launched by the effect of "swing" that emerged 2.5 billion years ago in the planet's atmosphere. Young atmosphere periodically passed from carbon-free state in the phase of saturation with carbon. This time of transition of the environment to the organic haze is the result of intense microbial that later greatly influenced the Earth's climate.

This assumption gives a glimpse into a time when the planet's atmosphere had no oxygen. Its heat contributed nothing like organic haze layer, the evidence of

Underwater volcanoes erupt differently

Macauley Island — caldera, formed after the eruption of an underwater volcano of the same name 6100 years ago (here and below the image of the authors.)

January 21, 2013. Until now, scientists were divided eruption into two categories: violent (explosive) and effusive. The first type involves adorable kids emission of ash and rock fragments high into the atmosphere (for example, eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980). The second — the soft glow of red lava streams that irrigate the slopes of the volcano (this, for example, constantly going on in Hawaii).

To get to the unusual

Underground boiler melt the Greenland ice

August 12, 2013. Climate scientists report that an unusually thin crust beneath the surface of Greenland partly explains the abnormally high rate of melting of its ice cap, as the hot magma mass beneath the surface act as one giant "kettle", reports the journal Nature Geoscience.

The temperature at the foot of the glacier, and, accordingly, their condition, at the same time depend on the flow of heat from the Earth's interior and temperature fluctuations on the surface. With this in Greenland there are areas where the foot of the glacier is melting, and which at the same time are

The global ocean is warmed by the eyes

Oceans relentlessly hot. An international team of scientists from the U.S., UK, Germany and Japan proved that during the period from 1993 to 2008. water temperature has risen by 0.15 degrees Celsius, while the "warm layers" go to 700 m depth.

According to the researchers, the heating of the oceans in shallow water and rising water — is undeniable indicators Global Warming. The upper layers of the ocean to absorb the energy that is the result of human-induced greenhouse effect, and this leads to an increase in the temperature of sea water.

However, the system of collection of

What is the solar storm on the sound?

What is the solar storm on the sound? It is interesting

To understand the solar storm in sound, researchers at the University of Michigan have created a system to measure sound during solar storms. Creator is a doctoral student Robert Alexander, who is also working with NASA on the study of sound and other sources of information.

Recently solar storm reached Mercury, and terrifying sound, recorded in a collision with the equipment, like the most terrible monster you can imagine. March 7, 2012 in the Sun there was a severe outbreak of X5, which hit the high-energy particles on the
