    Abstract : Natural gas, primarily methane (CH4), is produced in substantial amounts in ultramafic-hosted hydrothermal systems. These systems could also generate oil (heavier hydrocarbons) and the first building blocks of life (prebiotic molecules). In the presence of iron bearing minerals, serpentinisation reactions generate H2. READ MORE

  2. 2. Diversification on an ancient Darwinian island : Evolutionary history of caddisflies (Trichoptera) and other organisms on New Caledonia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm University

    Author : Marianne Espeland; Kjell Arne Johanson; Niklas Wahlberg; Michael Balke; [2010]
    Keywords : New Caledonia; Trichoptera; island; biogeography; phylogenetics; DNA; dispersal; vicariance; adaptation; ultramafic; diversification; new species; environmental factors; Systematic Zoology; zoologisk systematik och evolutionsforskning;

    Abstract : Islands are either of continental or oceanic origin, and the biota of such islands are a result of vicariance and dispersal, respectively. New Caledonia, in the South Pacific, is a part of former Gondwana, but the origin of its biota is heavily debated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Organics in hydrothermal fluids from ultramafic-hosted vents of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : cecile konn; [2008]
    Keywords : hydrothermal; organics; serpentinization; origin of life;

    Abstract : The process of serpentinization at slow spreading ridges is due to the circulation of seawater through outcropping mantle rocks. The peridotites of the mantle are altered via fluid-rock interaction generating, in the presence of Fe bearing minerals, high CH4- and H2-concentrations in the water column. READ MORE

  5. 5. Geochemical and geochronological constraints on 1.88 and 1.80 Ga magmatic events in the Gällivare area, northern Sweden

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Zimer Sarlus; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ore Geology; Malmgeologi;

    Abstract : The Gällivare area is situated in northern Norrbotten, Sweden, and hosts the Aitik Cu-Au deposit and the Malmberget Fe deposit. In addition, more than 17 mineral prospects and mineralizations are present, among these the currently developed Nautanen Cu-Au deposit. READ MORE
