Sir: Andrey Bekker and co-authors (Bekker et al., 2010) use a holistic approach to the deposition of iron formation (IF) by relating its genesis to a complex interplay of processes within the deep Earth, oceans, and biosphere. They comment (p. 469) that “In contrast to most previous studies, we suggest that no single parameter controlled iron-formation deposition.” The word “most” is critical here, since in a Discussion of IF genesis in Economic Geology nearly half a century ago (Trendall, 1965… CONTINUE READING
