Structure of the hydrate

Researchers Find the Effects of Ensembles on Methane Hydrate Nucleation Kinetics[06 28, 2016]

  Methane hydrate is a crystalline compound made from space-filling cages of water molecules that accommodate methane. It exists in much of the sediments that cover the oceanic floor as well as in permafrost. Research on methane hydrate nucleat...

Cyanobacteria (Stanieria) in 252 Ma Old Microbialites in South China[06 20, 2016]

  A recent study performed by Wu Yasheng from IGG revealed that mysterious tiny globular fossils found in Permian-Triassic boundary microbialites are actually calcified fossils of Stanieria, a genus of Chroococcophyceae cyanobacteria that exist...

Some microphtographs of Ordovician calcified cyanobacteria of Tarim Basin

The Most Diverse Ordovician Calcified Cyanobacteria Flora Was Found in the Tarim Basin, Northwest China[05 12, 2016]

  Cyanobacterial calcification is related to photosynthetic inorganic carbon uptake, raising the pH adjacent to cyanobacterial cells and promoting CaCO3 precipitation situated in or on the mucilaginous sheath of some cyanobacteria. Calcified sh...
