New feature: Recommended Carbonate Related Publications

This new feature will be added in the upcoming Carbonate Network e-mails as well as in the Discussion Forum (www.carbonet.net/forum). The aim of this new feature is to spread the word about publications that are interesting in a broad sense, interesting in a narrow sense, extreme in some direction or just well written/illustrated. You may also “advertise” a publication you or some of your colleagues have contributed to.

I encourage you all to contribute to this new feature. Send the title and reference of any publication (paper, book, e-learning, PhD thesis, etc.) you wish to share with The Carbonate Network members to brafaelsen@hotmail.com (please title the e-mail Recommended Carbonate Related Publications). Add a line or two why you find this publication interesting. All posted information will be from anonymous sources unless you wish your name to be stated.

Example:
“Stemmerik, L., Worsley, D., 2005. 30 years on – Arctic Upper Palaeozoic stratigraphy, depositional evolution and hydrocarbon prospectivity. Norwegian Journal of Geology 85, 151-168.

This paper is well written and provides a good and pedagogic overview of the Arctic Upper Palaeozoic stratigraphy.”

Popularize your scientific paper

By popularizing your scientific papers you reach a broader audience. Popular science papers are suited for publication in magazines rather than journals, but if you are unable to find a suited place to distribute your popularized paper we offer an alternative solution. Submit your popular science paper to brafaelsen@hotmail.com and we will make it available on our webpage (providing you document that you have permission from the publisher/journal where the scientific paper was first published).

Here is an example of a popular science publication in the Norwegian magazine GEO, where the content of a Sedimentary Geology paper is summarized. Title:
A model for late Paleozoic carbonate buildups http://www.carbonet.net/bjarne/papers/Rafaelsen_Andreassen_2008_GEO.pdf

---------------------------------------------------

Recommended Carbonate Related Publications

This new feature will occur in the upcoming Carbonate Network e-mails as well as in the Discussion Forum (http://www.carbonet.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=254).

The aim of this new feature is to spread the word about publications that are interesting in a broad sense, interesting in a narrow sense, extreme in some direction or just well written/illustrated. You may also “advertise” a publication you or some of your colleagues have contributed to.

I encourage you all to contribute to this new feature. Send the title and reference of any publication (paper, book, e-learning, PhD thesis, etc.) you wish to share with The Carbonate Network members to brafaelsen@hotmail.com (please title the e-mail Recommended Carbonate Related Publications). Add a line or two why you find this publication interesting. All posted information will be from anonymous sources unless you wish your name to be stated.

Recommended Carbonate Related Publications this time:

1) Dean, W., Rosenbaum, J., Skipp, G., Colman, S., Forester, R., Liu, A., Simmons, K., and Bischoff, J., 2006, Unusual Holocene and late Pleistocene carbonate sedimentation in Bear Lake, Utah and Idaho, U.S.A.: Sedimentary Geology, v. 185, p. 93-112.

This high elevation, high latitude, cold, snow-pack-fed lake pecipitated aragonite for most of the Holocene, with periods of low-Mg calcite. In 1911, the Bear River was diverted into the lake, lowered the salinity and, more importantly, the Mg/Ca ratio so that today the lake precipitates high-Mg calcite.

2) Dean, W. E., Forester, R. M., Bright, J., and Anderson, R.Y., 2007, Influence of the diversion of Bear River into Bear Lake (Utah and Idaho) on the environment of deposition of carbonate minerals: Evidence from water and sediments: Limnology and Oceanography, v. 52, p. 1094-111

The diversion of Bear River into Bear Lake in 1911 drastically changed the water chemistry of the lake, particularly lowering the Mg/Ca ratio, such that the lake went from precipitating aragonite to precipitating high-Mg calcite. However, the surface sediments consist mostly of aragonite that has been reworked from aragonitic sediments deposited at least 100 years ago.

3) Pavel Kabanov, Pere Anadón and Wolfgang E. Krumbein 2008: Microcodium: An extensive review and a proposed non-rhizogenic biologically induced origin for its formation. Sedimentary Geology, Vol. 205, Iss. 3-4, Pages 79-99.

Here a review of the available literature and the presented data reveal two peaks in Microcodium abundance; the Moscovian–early Permian and the latest Cretaceous–Paleogene. The authors propose a model of Microcodium formation involving an mycelial saprotrophic organism responsible for substrate corrosion and associated bacteria capable of consuming acidic metabolites and CaCO3 reprecipitation into the Microcodium structures.

Recommended Carbonate Related Publications this time:
Deep-water Coral Reefs: Unique Biodiversity Hot-spots by Martin Hovland (Hardcover - 1 May 2008). A preview of the book is available on books.google.com. This description is from amazon.co.uk:
Deep-water coral reefs are found along large sections of the outer continental shelves and slopes of Europe, from North Cape to the Gulf of Cadiz, and because they also occur along the Atlantic seaboard of USA, the Gulf of Mexico, off Brazil, in the Mediterranean, and off New Zealand, they are currently being targeted by international groups of marine scientists. They have become popular and opportune deep-water research targets because they offer exciting frontier exploration, combined with a whole plethora of modern scientific methods, such as deep-sea drilling, sampling, remote control surveying and documentation. Furthermore they represent timely opportunities for further developments within the application of geochemistry, stable isotope research, bacterial sciences, including DNA-sequestering, and medical research (search for bioactive compounds). The Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) has arranged a deep-sea scientific drilling campaign on giant carbonate banks off Ireland. Because the reefs currently defy traditional marine-ecological theories, they represent future research opportunities and will enjoy scientific scrutiny for many years to come.
