Understanding the link between the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO(2)) and Earth's temperature underpins much of paleoclimatology and our predictions of future global warming. Here, we use the inverse relationship between leaf stomatal indices and the partial pressure of CO(2) in modern Ginkgo biloba and Metasequoia glyptostroboides to develop a CO(2)(More)
By use of the postcoded database held by the Small Area Health Statistic Unit, cancer incidence of over 14 million people living near 72 municipal solid waste incinerators in Great Britain was examined from 1974-86 (England), 1974-84 (Wales) and 1975-87 (Scotland). Numbers of observed cases were compared with expected numbers calculated from national rates(More)
The Deccan Trap continental flood basalt eruptions of India occurred c. 67–63 Ma, thus spanning the Cretaceous–Tertiary boundary (65 Ma). Deccan eruptions were coeval with an interval of profound global environmental and climatic changes and widespread extinctions, and this timing has sparked controversy regarding the relative influence of Deccan volcanism(More)
The Boltysh crater has an entire suite of crater-fill impactites preserved, including two impact meltbearing breccias. Smectite occurrence in the breccias suggests two stages of alteration; an early hydrothermal mineralization, and a later, low temperature weathering. δD and δO of smectite separates are currently being measured and will be presented.
This study investigated the influence of dehydration on urinary levels of pseudoephedrine (PSE) after prolonged repeated effort activity. Fourteen athletes performed a simulated team game circuit (STGC) outdoors over 120 min under three different hydration protocols: hydrated (HYD), dehydrated (DHY) and dehydrated + postexercise fluid bolus (BOL). In all(More)
Lacustrine sediments from the 24 km diameter Boltysh impact structure record the rapid formation of an intra-crater lake. Stable isotope compositions and organic maturity parameters from the lake sediments deposited post-impact show that they were heated by underlying impactites. This heating is attributed to the establishment of an impactgenerated(More)
New high-precision ages, determined from palynomorph assemblages within intercalated sedimentary deposits, are presented for the Palaeogene lava fields (Skye, Mull and Antrim) of the British Province. These data reveal very rapid averaged eruption rates (1 m/200 years) and the non-synchronous formation of the lava fields. Eruption of the volumetrically(More)
