Record #191117:

Sources of organic matter for the Archean cryosphere / Perry A. Gerakines, Michael C. Storrie-Lombardi.

Title: Sources of organic matter for the Archean cryosphere / Perry A. Gerakines, Michael C. Storrie-Lombardi.
Author(s): Gerakines, Perry A.
Storrie-Lombardi, Michael C.
Date: 2009.
Publisher: London: Taylor & Francis
In: Polar microbiology : the ecology, biodiversity and bioremediation potential of microorganisms in extremely cold environments. (2009.),
Abstract: Gives brief overview of origin and evolution of organic molecules in astrophysical environments, and provides broader context to understanding origins of materials that made up original biosphere, particularly cryosphere, on Earth. Chemical reservoir for prebiotic and biotic chemistry in early biosphere was probably delivered from space by comet, asteroid and meteorite impacts, and included complex organics, and even amino acids and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). Argues that if complex hydrocarbons including PAHs were present from appearance of life on Archean Earth, there is probability that microorganisms efficiently degrading petroleum hydrocarbons and using them as metabolic resource will be found in remote polar ecosystems.
