Kerogen-bound glycerol dialkyl tetraether lipids released by hydropyrolysis of marine sediments: A bias against incorporation of sedimentary organisms?

Abstract

Over the past 10 years, the membrane lipids of archaea, particular glycerol dialkyl glycerol tetraethers (GDGTs) have been recognised as significant components of marine sediments and as potentially powerful tools in palaeoclimate reconstruction. However, relatively little is known about their preservation and, in particular, their incorporation into… (More)
