New research points to an explosion of color in early paravians and maniraptors, but the research also suggests the genes that control the colors of skin, hair and feathers are part of the body’s melanocortin system, which also influences metabolism,...

"To Tune or Not to Tune: Changes in Northeast Pacific Ventilation through Termination 1"

Abstract:

An abrupt increase in atmospheric CO2 and depletion of atmospheric D14C during the most recent deglaciation (Termination 1) is thought to be related to venting of aged carbon from the interior ocean, perhaps near Antarctica. We use radiocarbon reconstructions of past ocean ventilation rates to constrain oceanic sources and sinks of CO2, and evaluate mechanisms of subsurface hypoxia. However, records from the North Pacific are inconsistent and/or equivocal in their evidence for the presence of an aged watermass in the interior Pacific. Here we evaluate a deglacial radiocarbon record from the Gulf of Alaska on age models derived via two common techniques: tuning to the isotopic record of Greenland, and calibrating planktonic foraminiferal 14C.
