Secrets of ancient climate

Media by University of Wollongong          

What was Earth’s climate like almost four billion years ago? Given that the Sun was 30% cooler, was the Earth chilly or did an atmosphere much richer in greenhouse gases keep it warm? These are among some of Earth’s secrets being answered by researchers supported by an Australian Research Council Discovery Project grant.

The research aims to solve problems surrounding Earth’s early climate almost four billion years ago, and to understand the part that life might have already played in regulating it.
