The effects of secular calcium and magnesium concentration changes on the thermodynamics of seawater acid/base chemistry: Implications for Eocene and Cretaceous ocean carbon chemistry and buffering

Reconstructed changes in seawater calcium and magnesium concentration ([Ca2+], [Mg2+]) predictably affect the ocean’s acid/base and carbon chemistry. Yet inaccurate formulations of chemical equilibrium “constants” are currently in use to account for these changes. Show More Summary

The Arctic: Interglacial period with a break

Scientists have reconstructed the climatic development of the Arctic Ocean during the Cretaceous period, 145 to 66 million years ago. The research team comes to the conclusion that there was a severe cold snap during the geological age known for its extreme greenhouse climate. Show More Summary

Evidence of Reduced Export Productivity Supporting Living or Heterogeneous Ocean Hypotheses for KT/K-Pg mass Extinction

Evidence for reduced export productivity following the Cretaceous/Paleogene mass extinctionAuthors:Esmeray-Senlet et alAbstract:The Cretaceous/Paleogene (K/Pg) mass extinction was associated with a collapse in the carbon isotopic (?13C) gradient between planktonic and benthic foraminifera and a decrease in bulk carbonate ?13C values.
