View Full Version : Paleo Oxygen levels Related to Earth's Cooling Rates

The Urey ratio, the ratio of heat generated to heat released (cooling) is correlated to the history of oxygen levels in Earth's atmosphere. Differing rates of subduction, incorporating water, vs rates of volcanism, and Mid-Atlantic Ridge lava flows, releasing entrained water, match the geologic record. SEE:https://arxiv.org/abs/1801.09148
