Hannah Hickey, University of Washington As the complex story of climate change unfolds, many of the endings are grim. But there are exceptions. Predictions that the lowest-oxygen environments in the ocean would get worse may not come to pass. Instead, University of Washington research shows climate change, as it weakens the trade winds, could shrink the size of these extreme low-oxygen waters. "The tropics should actually get better oxygenated as the climate warms up," said Curtis...

Burrowing Animals May Have Been Key To Stabilizing Earth's Oxygen Reservoir
2014-08-08 03:22:57

University of Southern Denmark Evolution of the first burrowing animals may have played a major role in stabilizing the Earth's oxygen reservoir, according to a new study in Nature Geoscience. Around 540 million years ago, the first burrowing animals evolved. When these worms began to mix up the ocean floor's sediments (a process known as bioturbation), their activity came to significantly influence the ocean's phosphorus cycle and as a result, the amount of oxygen in Earth's...

Oxygen Therapy
2013-04-30 10:27:06

Oxygen therapy is known as the administration of oxygen as a medical intervention. It is indicated in patients whose oxygen supply is compromised due to both acute and chronic health conditions and can be administered in many different ways. Oxygen therapy can be administered virtually wherever the patient is. Most commonly, oxygen is delivered to patients in an ambulance, hospital, or doctor’s office. These medical facilities carry oxygen in the form of a compressed gas. It is stored...

The Paleoproterozoic is the first of three subdivisions of the Proterozoic Eon (occurring from 2.5 billion to 1.6 billion years ago (Ga). This period is marked by the first stabilization of the continents, and also when cyanobacteria--a type of bacteria that uses biochemical processes of photosynthesis to produce oxygen--evolved. Experts have found paleontological evidence that during at least part of the Paleoproterozoic era, about 1.8 Ga, the earth year was about 450 days long, with days...
