  • One of the most fundamental enigmas of the Earth's palaeoclimate concerns the temporal and spatial distributions of Precambrian glaciations. Through four billion years of Precambrian history, unequivocally glacial deposits have been found only in the Palaeoproterozoic and Neoproterozoic record1. Nonetheless, some of these deposits are closely associated with tropical— rather than just polar—palaeolatitudinal indicators such as carbonate rocks, red beds, and evaporites1,2. These observations are… CONTINUE READING
