Thermochronologic perspectives on the deep-time evolution of the deep biosphere
The Earth’s deep biosphere is one of the least explored and understood environments. It hosts microbial lineages that are of interest for understanding the origin and evolution of life on our planet. Understanding the history of these microbial communities requires assessing the complex evolution of habitable conditions. This talk is on a new thermochronologic approach providing context for prospecting and interpreting the little-explored geologic record of the deep biosphere of Earth’s cratons, and points to candidate areas for the oldest records of subsurface microorganisms.
