    • Higher than present global mean sea level recorded by an Early Pliocene intertidal unit in Patagonia (Argentina) 

      Rovere, AlessioORCIDiD; Pappalardo, MartaORCIDiD; Richiano, Sebastian; Aguirre, Marina; Sandstrom, Michael R.ORCIDiD; Hearty, Paul J.; Austermann, Jacqueline; Castellanos, Ignacio; Raymo, Maureen E. (Communications Earth & Environment, 2020-12-23)
      Reconstructions of global mean sea level from earlier warm periods in Earth’s history can help constrain future projections of sea level rise. Here we report on the sedimentology and age of a geological unit in central ...
    • Neogene hyperaridity in Arabia drove the directions of mammalian dispersal between Africa and Eurasia 

      Böhme, MadelaineORCIDiD; Spassov, Nikolai; Majidifard, Mahmoud Reza; Gärtner, AndreasORCIDiD; Kirscher, UweORCIDiD; Marks, Michael; Dietzel, Christian; Uhlig, Gregor; El Atfy, HaythamORCIDiD; Begun, David R.; Winklhofer, MichaelORCIDiD (Communications Earth & Environment, 2021-05-18)
      The evolution of the present-day African savannah fauna has been substantially influenced by the dispersal of Eurasian ancestors into Africa. The ancestors evolved endemically, together with the autochthonous taxa, into ...
    • Past penguin colony responses to explosive volcanism on the Antarctic Peninsula 

      Roberts, Stephen J.; Monien, PatrickORCIDiD; Foster, Louise C.; Loftfield, Julia; Hocking, Emma P.; Schnetger, BernhardORCIDiD; Pearson, Emma J.; Juggins, Steve; Fretwell, Peter; Ireland, Louise; Ochyra, Ryszard; Haworth, Anna R.; Allen, Claire S.; Moreton, Steven G.; Davies, Sarah J.; Brumsack, Hans-JürgenORCIDiD; Bentley, Michael J.; Hodgson, Dominic A. (2017)
      Changes in penguin populations on the Antarctic Peninsula have been linked to several environmental factors, but the potentially devastating impact of volcanic activity has not been considered. Here we use detailed ...
    • The Toba supervolcano eruption caused severe tropical stratospheric ozone depletion 

      Osipov, SergeyORCIDiD; Stenchikov, GeorgiyORCIDiD; Tsigaridis, KostasORCIDiD; LeGrande, Allegra N.; Bauer, Susanne E.; Fnais, Mohammed; Lelieveld, JosORCIDiD (Communications Earth & Environment, 2021-04-12)
      Supervolcano eruptions have occurred throughout Earth’s history and have major environmental impacts. These impacts are mostly associated with the attenuation of visible sunlight by stratospheric sulfate aerosols, which ...
