Ocean Drilling Program Leg 201 was the first ocean drilling expedition dedicated to the study of life deep beneath the seafloor. Its seven sites were selected to represent the general range of subsurface environments that exist in marine sediments throughout most of the world’s oceans. In water depths as great as 5300 m and as shallow as 150 m, the(More)
Hydrogen (H2) is produced in geological settings by dissociation of water due to radiation from radioactive decay of naturally occurring uranium ((238)U, (235)U), thorium ((232)Th) and potassium ((40)K). To quantify the potential significance of radiolytic H2 as an electron donor for microbes within the South Pacific subseafloor basaltic aquifer, we use(More)
[1] It is widely recognized that a significant negative excursion in carbon isotopic (dC) differences between planktic and benthic foraminiferal tests occurred at the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K-T) boundary. We applied parametric and nonparametric breakpoint tests and statistical comparisons of different recovery models to assess the timing and pattern of(More)
