Microbially Mediated Alteration of Volcanic Glass using McMurdo Extreme Environments as Natural Laboratories
Entry ID: NSF-ANT07-39712

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This project studies the microbial processes that alter volcanic glass, which is critical to understanding the earliest life on earth. To understand the environmental controls on these processes, this project uses the extreme environments of the McMurdo region of Antarctica as a natural laboratory. Volcanic glass substrates are placed in hydrothermal systems, lakes, and other areas for two to four ... View entire text
