Breathing? Thank volcanoes, tectonics and bacteria
Breathing? Thank volcanoes, tectonics and bacteria
Study points to one cause for several mysteries linked to breathable oxygen Earth's breathable atmosphere is key for life, and a new study suggests that the first burst of oxygen was added by a spate of volcanic eruptions brought about by tectonics. The study by geoscientists at Rice University offers a new theory to help explain the appearance of significant concentrations of oxygen in Earth's atmosphere about 2.5 billion years ago, something scientists call the Great Oxidation Event (GOE).

UW team sending autonomous surfboard to explore Antarctic waters
This week, a surfboard arrived in Antarctica. Not only was it missing a surfer, but the unique board was covered in parts that let it move independently and measure the surrounding seawater. The University of Washington project will first use the Wave Glider to investigate the summer conditions near Palmer Station on the Antarctic Peninsula, to better understand how the warming ocean interacts with ice shelves that protrude from the shore.
