early Albian oceanic anoxic event 1b (OAE) (112 million years ago) occurring in the warm Cretaceous greenhouse period. By studying one distinct and relatively short climate perturbation in the geological past, Wagner et al. aimed to better understand the mechanism and feedbacks of short climate perturbations. Atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations in the Cretaceous early Albian period were reconstructed to have ranged from 500 to 3000 parts per million. The consensus of climate scientists is that a 200 percent increase of modern levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide may occur by 2100 or later, placing future levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide within the range of early Albian greenhouse conditions.


From slow to ultraslow: A previously undetected event at the Southwest Indian Ridge at ca. 24 Ma

Heather Sloan et al., Environmental, Geographic and Geological Sciences, Lehman College, CUNY, 250 Bedford Park Boulevard West, Bronx, New York 10468, USA. Pages 207-210.

Using a newly compiled set of published and unpublished magnetic data, Sloan et al. reconstruct plate motion at the Southwest Indian Ridge. Findings indicate a 50 percent drop in spreading rate at circa 24 million years ago. This shift from slow to ultraslow spreading had remained undetected because it was not accompanied by a change in spreading direction which would have been observed in fracture zone trends. This change in relative motion appears to have been transmitted to two of the four adjoining plate boundaries. Occurring during a period of significant change in relative and absolute plate motion, the rate of change at the Southwest Indian Ridge is interpreted as part of a global event along the plate boundary system.
