Redox chemistry changes in the Panthalassic Ocean linked to the end-Permian mass extinction and delayed Early Triassic biotic recovery, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2017). DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1610931114AbstractThe end-Permian mass extinction represents the most severe biotic crisis for the last 540 million years, and the marine ecosystem recovery from this extinction was protracted, spanning the entirety of the Early Triassic and possibly longer. Numerous studies from the low-latitude Paleotethys and high-latitude Boreal oceans have examined the possible link between ocean chemistry changes and the end-Permian mass extinction. However, redox chemistry changes in the Panthalassic Ocean, comprising ∼85–90% of the global ocean area, remain under debate. Here, we report multiple S-isotopic data of pyrite from Upper Permian–Lower Triassic deep-sea sediments of the Panthalassic Ocean, now present in outcrops of western Canada and Japan. We find a sulfur isotope signal of negative Δ33S with either positive δ34S or negative δ34S that implies mixing of sulfide sulfur with different δ34S before, during, and after the end-Permian mass extinction. The precise coincidence of the negative Δ33S anomaly with the extinction horizon in western Canada suggests that shoaling of H2S-rich waters may have driven the end-Permian mass extinction. Our data also imply episodic euxinia and oscillations between sulfidic and oxic conditions during the earliest Triassic, providing evidence of a causal link between incursion of sulfidic waters and the delayed recovery of the marine ecosystem. Approximately 252 million years ago, the Earth experienced the largest die-off in its history, with approximately 90 percent of all life on the planet going extinct. Scientists have put forth a number of theories regarding the cause, but to date, a consensus has not been reached. In this new effort, the research team suggests that a type of shoaling began to occur for unknown reasons, which stirred up sulphides resting on the seafloor causing them to mix with seawater and making it impossible for most life in the ocean to survive.The team’s theory came after studying rocks found in parts of Canada and Japan—parts of the planet that once were under the Panthalassic Ocean. They found sulphur oxide mixed with other types of sulphur, which suggested that the ocean had been subjected to mixing of sulphur types, leading to toxic levels that made it nearly impossible for sea life to survive. They note that mixing occurred just before the great die-off, as it occurred, and then for some time thereafter, which, they note, also explains why it took nearly 10 million years for sea life to recover.The researchers suggest the mixing in the oceans was likely due to shoaling, which is when waves grow taller as they encounter shallower water while moving toward a shoreline. Because the process causes changes in both density and velocity, water can become stirred up.The researchers do not address the possible reason for the sudden change in shoaling, nor the possibility that it could have somehow contributed to the massive die-out that occurred on land, as well.

In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team describes evidence they found in rocks in Canada and Japan that suggests at least part of the great die-off was due to excess toxic sulphides permeating the world’s oceans.
Kolkata: For the first time in India, Geological Survey of India (GSI) is going to use ultramodern remote sensing technology with the help of sensor developed by NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), USA called — “Advanced Visible Infra-Red Imaging Spectrometer Next Generation (AVIRIS-NG)” to locate minerals like lead, zinc, copper, platinum, diamond, gold and other associated minerals.”This sensor is an engineering marvel and has been proved effective for mapping surface mineralogy in different parts of the world,” a senior GSI official said. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeRecently, AVIRIS-NG sensor was mounted onboard ISRO aircraft for acquiring the hyperspectral images for fourteen mineralized blocks in different parts of India, namely Jhagadia and Ambaji of Gujarat, Zawar, Udaipur, Pur Banera, Jahazpur and Bhukia in Rajasthan, Hutti-Maski in Karnataka, Wajrakarur in Andhra Pradesh, Sittampundi in Tamil Nadu, KuhiKhobna in Maharashtra, Tundi in Jharkhand and Chattarpur in Madhya Pradesh.A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been recently signed between the GSI and the National Remote Sensing Centre-Indian Space Research Organization (NRSC-ISRO) in Kolkata in presence of Dr Dinesh Gupta, Director General, GSI and Santanu Chowdhury, Director, NRSC.

As a matter of fact, every mineral shows specific spectral character and hence hyperspectral remote sensing is used to detect minerals based on their spectral characteristics.It may be mentioned that hyperspectral data has immense potential for mineral exploration with regard to mapping of the host rock and surface alterations associated with the mineral forming processes.Hyperspectral remote sensing, also known as imaging spectroscopy, are not only used on earth but also used for mapping minerals on Moon and Mars.

Clients can stay in bungalows on stilts at Sol Cayo Largo, known for its ecological excursions, while families with little ones will love the shallow waters at Hotel Pelicano. Also available are Iberostar Playa Blanca, located just five minutes from Playa Sirena beach, as well as Villa Iguana, ideal for couples and singles seeking a quiet getaway.Just off the southern coast of the Cuban mainland, Cayo Largo boasts over 25 kilometres of beaches, 32 diving sites and over 200 sunken ships that date back to the 16th century. All Sunwing packages include return flights on Sunwing Airlines. Tags: Cuba, New Routes, Sunwing Sunwing adds new flights to Cayo Largo, Cuba
Thursday, January 31, 2019 Share << Previous PostNext Post >> By: The Canadian Press Toronto airport runway setup poses serious crash risk, safety board finds Tags: Safety, Toronto Pearson Airport TORONTO — Air safety authorities say the runway setup at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport poses a serious risk of crashes.The Transportation Safety Board says there were 27 runway incursions between June 2012 and November 2017.Incursions occur when an aircraft finds itself on the wrong runway.The board says the incursions all involved aircraft that landed on an outer runway but ended up on an adjacent inner runway.The incidents occurred despite instructions from air traffic control to stop before entering the second runway.The report cites design problems with the airfield and busy flight crews missing various cues.“All 27 incursions examined involved flight crews who understood they needed to stop, and that they were approaching an active runway,” Kathy Fox, chairwoman of the board said in a statement.“Despite all the visual cues, including lights, signage and paint markings, professional crews were not stopping in time as required, thereby risking a collision with another aircraft on the other runway.”More news: Venice to ban cruise ships from city centre starting next monthThe board report makes four recommendations, including better instructions to flight crews and changes to the runway layout.
