View Resource Hardy Microbe Thrives at pH 0

This article reports that a team of geomicrobiologists has detected a new microbe, called Ferroplasma acidarmanus, surviving in some of the most acidic waters on Earth - a seemingly impossible pH near 0. That makes this critter, a member of the microbial kingdom Archaea, one of a few record-setting microbes that can survive in conditions usually toxic to life as we know it. A subscription to...

View Resource Paleoceanography

This National Climate Data Center collection features links to climate data derived from ocean records. These include CLIMAP (sea surface temperature reconstructions), SPECMAP (a reconstruction based on planktonic counts and isotopic values and age and sea surface temperature models), Relative sea level, Calcium carbonate, and Foraminifera (shelled marine microorganisms) data proxies.

View Resource Garbage-Eating Geobacter

This Geotimes article highlights recent work done by Derek Lovley on the microbe Geobacter. The article discusses the ability of Geobacter to eat metal wastes as well as the prospect of using Geobacter as a microbial fuel cell. The web site also contains links to the Geotimes' home page, the American Geological Institute (AGI) home, and other useful AGI links.

View Resource Priscu Research Group

The Priscu Research Group, led by Professor John C. Priscu in the Department of Land Resources and Environmental Sciences at Montana State University focuses on the geomicrobiology, biogeochemistry, and ecology of Antarctic lakes. The site provides information on personnel, research, publications, data, images, Arctic and Antarctic related links, and links to Montana State University, the...

View Resource Cave Formation: Biogeochemical Cycles

This video explores the role of biogeochemical cycles in the formation of caves. It discusses a radical new theory that identifies sulfuric acid as a cave-forming agent. The video, adapted from a NOVA broadcast, identifies the source of the sulfuric acid, which, unlike carbonic acid, the typical cave-forming agent, does not readily form in nature. The segment is 5 minutes and forty seconds in...
