Liv på jorden for 3,8 mia. år siden? = Nunarsuaq ukiut 3,8 mia-t matuma siornagut inuuneqarsimanerluni? / Peter Appel.

Title: Liv på jorden for 3,8 mia. år siden? = Nunarsuaq ukiut 3,8 mia-t matuma siornagut inuuneqarsimanerluni? / Peter Appel.
Translated title: Life on earth 3.8 billion years ago?.
Author(s): Appel, Peter.
Date: 1996.
Language: Danish and Greenlandic.
In: Forskning i Grønland = Tusaat. (1996.), Vol. 4 (1996)
Abstract: American scientists from Scripps Institute believe that they have found signs of life in world's oldest rocks, which are 3.8 billion years old. These are in SW Greenland. If true, our knowledge has been shifted 300 million years back. It seems unlikely that life can be found much earlier, as meteor bombardment was severe at 3.9 billion years ago. Dating was carbon method, with some uncertainty because of burial at great depth and pressure, but new technique claims to circumvent this.
