About this book Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume Earth climate is uniquely determined at any time by the varied interactions of its components: lithosphere, biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere (ocean, lakes and rivers) and cryosphere.

@article{osti_, title = {Earth's earliest biosphere: Its origin and evolution}, author = {Schopf, J.W.}, abstractNote = {Some of the subjects discussed are related to the early biogeologic history, the nature of the earth prior to the oldest known rock record, the early earth and the Archean rock record, the prebiotic organic syntheses and the origin of life, Precambrian organic.

The Snowball Earth hypothesis proposes that during one or more of Earth's icehouse climates, Earth's surface became entirely or nearly entirely frozen, sometime earlier than Mya (million years ago) during the Cryogenian ents of the hypothesis argue that it best explains sedimentary deposits generally regarded as of glacial origin at tropical palaeolatitudes and other enigmatic.

The Proterozoic climate revisitedSnowball Earth. but it is not one which we will take up in this book. The Proterozoic was above all a time of adjustment of biosphere and climate to the massive changes wrought by oxygenation of the atmosphere and ocean.

It is a matter of current debate as to whether the oxygenation began in this eon. The growth and recycling of the continental crust are considered along with the early oceanic crust.

The sedimentary system is discussed, taking into account the growth and recycling of the sedimentary mass, the evolution of sedimentary facies assemblages, clastic sediments and their chemistry, and (bio)chemical sedimentation.

Attention is also given to the Archean-Early Proterozoic oceans Cited by: A monumental (1, pp.) research monograph, The Proterozoic Biosphere, A Multidisciplinary Study was completed, edited, and published (; Cambridge University Press).

Most wide-scale and significant in manganese resources is unquestionably the Early-Middle Proterozoic epoch of manganese accumulation, above all phase 1 (see Fig.

).At this time existed the most significant area in terms of metallogenic potential of manganese—the South African basin (Kalahari), where today resources constitute no less than 5–6 billion tons.

The third part of the book provides an overview of the history of life on earth, emphasizing major evolutionary 'events' and their significance for the biosphere.

This part begins with a consideration of life's origins and concludes with a section on the evolution of hominids. Stratigraphic and Geochronometric time interval considered here is – Ma; that is, the latest Paleoproterozoic Eon to the end of the Early Cambrian Period (Figure 1 and Table 1).U-Pb dates on accessory minerals in volcanic rocks of known relationship to fossiliferous strata are limited for this interval—but then, such data are also limited for younger Paleozoic fossils.

"The history of Earth's early atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere, from Hadean through Proterozoic time, is one of geology's enduring puzzles. Ore deposits provide important insights into this history because they contain elements and minerals that are highly sensitive to the geochemical environment in which they form.

Just what these minerals tell us remains a matter of considerable. Lovelock, This book deals with the development of Earth as a system, from the Archaean onwards, stressing interactions between the atmosphere and the biosphere.
