Ancient sedimentary rocks record evidence of major climate change and variations in the composition of the atmosphere. By applying novel isotopic and geochemical techniques, this project aims to document when and how the Earths atmosphere and climate changed prior to the evolution of complex lifeforms. Curiously, such dramatic climate changes have controlled both the rate of evoutionary process and the formation of world class mineral deposits.
