Sulfidic anoxia in the oceans during the Late Ordovician mass extinctions – insights from molybdenum and uranium isotopic global redox proxies (2021)
Journal Article
Dahl, T. W., Hammarlund, E. U., Rasmussen, C. M. Ø., Bond, D. P., & Canfield, D. E. (2021). Sulfidic anoxia in the oceans during the Late Ordovician mass extinctions – insights from molybdenum and uranium isotopic global redox proxies. Earth-Science Reviews, 220, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.earscirev.2021.103748

The Late Ordovician Mass Extinction wiped out 85% of animal species in two phases (LOME1 and LOME2). The kill mechanisms for the extinction phases are debated, but deteriorating climate and the expansion of marine anoxia appear to have been important...

Transient Permian-Triassic euxinia in the southern Panthalassa deep ocean (2021)
Journal Article
Takahashi, S., Strachan, L. J., Yin, R., Wignall, P. B., Bond, D. P., & Grasby, S. E. (in press). Transient Permian-Triassic euxinia in the southern Panthalassa deep ocean. Geology, 49(8), 889-893. https://doi.org/10.1130/G48928.1

Both the duration and severity of deep-water anoxic conditions across the Permian-Triassic mass extinction (PTME) are controversial. Panthalassa Ocean circulation models yield varying results, ranging from a well-ventilated deep ocean to rapidly deve...

Global warming and mass extinctions associated with large igneous province volcanism (2021)
Book Chapter
Bond, D., & Sun, Y. (2021). Global warming and mass extinctions associated with large igneous province volcanism. In Environmental Change and Large Igneous Provinces: The Deadly Kiss of LIPs. American Geophysical Union

The coincidence of large igneous province (LIP) eruptions with at least three, if not all of the “Big Five” biotic crises of the Phanerozoic implies that volcanism is a key driver of mass extinctions. Many LIP-induced extinction scenarios invoke glob... Read More about Global warming and mass extinctions associated with large igneous province volcanism.
