Extinction Events in Earth History and Today

Flood Basalts and Mass Extinctions – refine ancient hyperthermals as analogs for anthropogenic climate change.  Oceanic Anoxic Event (OAE) and mass extinctions are considered to be hyperthermals – usually associated with flood basalt eruptions.[2] Phases of rapid global warming, known collectively as hyperthermals.[1]  Flood basalts are a subset of large igneous provinces (LIPs), the terms flood basalt…

The Current State of Arctic PERMAFROST THAW

Soil layers of permafrost that scientists expected to remain frozen for at least 70 more years have already begun thawing. NOTES In the Canadian Arctic, layers of permafrost that scientists expected to remain frozen for at least 70 years have already begun thawing. The once-frozen surface is now sinking and dotted with melt ponds and…

New Mechanism for Methane Hydrate Dissociation Discovered

Methane hydrates are ice like structures forming a solid similar to ice. Significant amounts have been located under sediments on the ocean floors of the Earth. Generally, methane hydrates are more stable in fresh water than in salt water. A region allowing the formation for methane hydrates (largely dependent on depth and pressure) is called…

Video: Enhanced Seismic Activity Observed in Alaska Due To Climate Change

With news breaking that Alaska just had its warmest March to May on record with a statewide average temperature of 32.6°F, 8.6°F above the long-term average – the previous warmest spring in Alaska was in 2016, one must ask how this performs in relation to seismicity. Read the study excerpts of, Enhanced Seismic Activity Observed in Alaska Due…
