Volcanic emissions and the early Earth atmosphere

Abstract:

Despite uncertainties in our understanding of early Earth volcanism and atmospheric composition, thermodynamic modelling is able to offer estimates of the global production of reactive trace species (NO, OH, SO 3, Cl, Br and I) from early Earth volcanism, and thereby to shed light on processes which may have been different in Earth's early atmosphere. Model results show that thermal decomposition of magmatic H 2O, CO 2 an...
