New project funded: Natural CO2 removal from a high-CO2 atmosphere

August 10, 2023By Tais W DahlAwards, News

Deliberate carbon dioxide removal (CDR) from the atmosphere is necessary to keep globalwarming at safe levels in this century. Enhanced weathering and ocean fertilization are powerfulnatural CDR processes with potentials to counter global warming, but their impact andbiogeochemical consequences upon implementation are uncertain due to limited verification at theglobal scale in the real world. Past … Read More

The greatest animal radiation on Earth was promoted by a stable marine redox landscape

October 3, 2022By Tais W DahlOutreach, Publication

The greatest rise in marine biodiversity in all of Earth’s history surprisingly was not fuelled by ocean oxygenation. Instead, oceanic redox stability appears to have favoured increased ecosystem resilience and – ultimately – a massive rise in global biodiversity levels. Oxygen rise occurred later… PhD student Alvaro del Rey measured the uranium isotope composition of … Read More

Telling actual time in the rock record

May 5, 2022By Tais W DahlUncategorized

We have discovered a new method to tell time in the Geological record, using core scanning XRF analyses, which we have now applied to Cambrian and Ordovician rocks to refine the Geological Time Scale. The study, led by my PhD student Zhengfu Zhao, is now published in Nature Communications. The new method was first discovered … Read More
