New studies support that agricultural lime affects strontium analyzes

Erik Thomsen and Rasmus Andreasen from the Department of Geoscience demonstrate in two new scientific articles that strontium from agricultural lime is leached from the upper soil layers and thus affects the strontium isotope values in the environment. Thus, a number of hypotheses about the origins of prehistoric humans should be revised.

Hadal trenches are dynamic hotspots for early diagenesis in the deep sea

Professor Sanei in collaboration with an international research team have explored sediment characteristics and in-situ benthic oxygen uptake along two trenches in the Pacific Ocean. They have concluded that hadal trenches represent deep sea hotspots for early diagenesis and are more diverse and dynamic environments than previously recognized.
