Ein ny forskingsartikkel av forskarar frå Institutt frå geofag og Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin m.fl. publisert i Nature Geoscience, kastar ljos over kva som kan ha skjedd ved den største av dei fem kjente masseutryddingane på jorda. Henrik Svensen er intervjua om denne studien i forskning.no. 

The Permian-Triassic boundary is outcropping in the stream bed of Deltadalen, Svalbard. A 100-meter-long core was drilled one kilometer south of the outcrop in 2014, recovering the boundary interval. The Grusryggen mountain in the background. View to the south. (Photo: Julian Janocha.

A new study led by Dr. Martin Schobben (Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin), with co-authors from the Dept. for Geosciences (UiO), describes the causal chains between environmental changes and mass extinction at the Permian-Triassic boundary about 252 million years ago. From this study, scientists can get a glimpse of what might happen to biodiversity under the predicted global warming in the near future. New publication in Nature Geoscience.

Historiske kilder beskriver kulde og tåke over Europa, Midt-Østen, deler av Asia. De norrøne sagaene forteller om Fimbulvinteren (den mektige vinteren) og at Fenrisulven hadde slukt sola. Hva skjedde året 536? Det tverrfaglige UiO-forskerteamet i VIKINGS vil finne ut om det kjølige klimaet gav uro, folkevandring og vikingtokt. Les mer i A-magasinet.
