Waves and weathering at 3.7 Ga: Geological evidence for an equitable terrestrial climate under the faint early Sun

Nutman, Allen P; Bennett, Victoria; Friend, Clark

Description

Chemical sedimentary rocks such as banded iron formation (BIF) and pillow basalts are persistent features of the oldest volcanic and sedimentary record by 3.8-3.7 Ga, and are direct evidence for oceans by the start of the Archean. However, their presence
