Dawen Permian-Triassic boundary
10/13/11

 

The research team analyzed carbonate rock samples collected from the Dawen Permian-Triassic boundary section located on the Great Bank of Guizhou, a carbonate platform in China's Guizhou Province. Uranium isotopes measured in these ancient rocks showed that the world's oceans experienced a rapid shift toward strongly oxygen-deficient conditions at the time of the end-Permian mass extinction.
