Free atmospheric phosphine concentrations and fluxes in different wetland ecosystems, China.

Phosphine on Venus Cannot Be Explained by Conventional Processes.

This work thoroughly explores the potential pathways of formation of phosphine in a venusian environment, including in the planet's atmosphere, cloud and haze layers, surface, and subsurface, and provides a template for investigation of phosphines as a biosignature on other worlds.

Global phosphorus dynamics in terms of phosphine

Since the detection of phosphine in the wastewater treatment plants in 1988, more and more investigations revealed that phosphine is closely related to ecological activities on a global scale. Here,

Ariel – a window to the origin of life on early earth?

Parts of prebiotic chemistry that will help in formulating future observational and data interpretation strategies for the Ariel mission are discussed, intended to open a discussion and motivate future detailed laboratory studies of pre biotic processes on young exoplanets and their chemical signatures.

Phosphine as a Biosignature Gas in Exoplanet Atmospheres.

It is found that phosphine can accumulate to detectable concentrations on planets with surface production fluxes of 1010 to 1014 cm-2 s-1 (corresponding to surface concentrations of 10s of ppb to 100s of ppm), depending on atmospheric composition and ultraviolet (UV) irradiation.

Differential and Integral Cross Sections of Electron Elastic Scattering by PH3 Molecule in the Energy Ranging from 10 eV up to 20 keV

Differential and integral cross sections for electron elastic scattering by phosphine molecule at the incident energies ranging from 10 eV up to 20 keV are calculated using the well known partial



14 The Phosphorus Cycle

Observation of the nu-squared band of PH3 in the atmosphere of Saturn

Observation of the $nu$$sub 2$ band of PH$sub 3$ in the Saturnian atmosphere represents the first positive identification of this compound in the planet. The observed spectrum is consistent with line

Evidence for the climatic role of marine biogenic sulphur

Oceanic dimethylsulphide (DMS) emissions and atmospheric aerosol particle populations (condensation nuclei, CN), resolved by latitude and season, appear to be directly correlated, in that CN, as

Detection of phosphine: new aspects of the phosphorus cycle in the hydrosphere

The role of phosphorus in limiting organic matter production and in causing eutrophication has been in the forefront of hydrobiological research during the past 30–50 yr1–7. Comparing the cycles of

Corrosion of Iron and Formation of Iron Phosphide by Desulfovibrio desulfuricans

The classical theory of anaerobic bacterial corrosion, postulated by von Wolzogen Kühr and van der Vlugt1, states that certain organisms, primarily those of the bacterial genus Desulfovibrio, remove hydrogen by means of a hydrogenase, and iron dissolves as Fe++ ions at the anode.
