Two-step rise of atmospheric oxygen linked to the growth of continents Cin-Ty A. Lee, Laurence Y. Yeung, N. Ryan McKenzie, Yusuke Yokoyama, Kazumi Ozaki, & Adrian Lenardic Nature Geoscience (2016) doi:10.1038/ngeo2707 Earth owes its oxygenated atmosphere to its unique claim on life, but how the atmosphere evolved from an initially oxygen-free state remains unresolved. The […]
Every year, the National Science Foundation awards Graduate Research Fellowships to senior undergrads and beginning graduate students. These prestigious awards provide full funding for graduate school in the fields of science, mathematics and engineering. They are one of the most coveted awards for a young scientist. This year, two of our current students and two […]
