Record #184990:

Slush find / Alan J. Kaufman.

Title: Slush find / Alan J. Kaufman.
Author(s): Kaufman, Alan J.
Date: 2007.
In: Nature. (2007.), Vol. 450 (2007)
Abstract: Comments on coupled model of palaeoclimate and carbon cycling which suggests that Earth was once slushball rather than snowball. Model shows how climate and atmospheric oxygen might have combined to allow atmospheric gases such as oxygen to diffuse more readily into deep sea forcing oxidation of dissolved organic carbon to CO₂, which when released back to atmosphere would warm planet and thereby end glacial epoch.
Notes:

Nature. Vol. 450 :807-808 (2007).
