Take a look at some of our recent research projects.
In an article published online in PNAS Tuesday Sep 10th, we have demonstrated how a combination of metal isotope analyses in marine sedimentary rocks can constrain the global scale feedbacks between atmospheric oxygen, seafloor oxygenation, and marine biological production. The relationship between O2 and animal life turns out to be more entangled than first thought. […]
Animals breath oxygen, but fossils of some of the earliest animals are found in what appears to be anoxic parts of the oceans. New research, led by Tais W. Dahl in collaboration with researchers from GEUS and Royal Holloway University London, shows that fluctuations in O2 availability at the seafloor allowed benthic animals to invade […]
The Niels Bohr Institute invites teachers to a conference called “Big Bang til Naturfag” (Big Bang to Science) to learn more about the history of the universe, our planet and the evolution life. On Aug 6, 2019 Tais W. Dahl is giving the talk entitled “Det tidligste liv” (The earliest life). Hereafter, Morten Allentoft from […]
