The results reported in this letter established that majorite functions as a kind of "reservoir" for oxygen, and when the majorite ascends nearer to the surface of the Earth it breaks down and releases its oxygen. Some of this oxygen also binds with hydrogen released from the interior of the Earth to form water. The authors have referred to the whole process as an "oxygen elevator." They go on to say that "without the 'oxygen elevator' in its mantle the Earth would probably be a barren planet hostile to life. According to our findings, planets below a certain size hardly have any chance of forming a stable atmosphere with a high water content." This research confirms the existence of one more finely tuned mechanism that depends on plate tectonics and contributes to an environment that can support life. It also gives humans one more reason to be appreciative rather than dismayed when we experience an earthquake that breaks some precious possessions beyond repair. -- Bert ( A W RvB ) (Adres op website) bert.nul http://www.awrvb.nl Twitter: awrvbnl Listen to 'Strange Days...
