Teile der Kontinente enthalten trotz mehrfacher Umgestaltung durch die Plattentektonik noch Informationen über das initiale Stadium der Abkühlung des Planeten Erde. Im Gegensatz dazu ist in den Ozeanplatten die Geodynamik der Erde aufgezeichnet, wie sie sich in dem geologisch kurzen Zeitraum von a hundred and fifty MA zwischen ihrem Entstehen an den mittelozeanischen Rücken bis zur Verschluckung in Subduktionszonen abspielt.
Photoinduced approaches, as a result of normal sun, are key features for maintaining all dwelling organisms via creation and transformation of natural topic (OM) within the biosphere. creation of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) from OM is a first-rate step of photoinduced methods, simply because H2O2 acts as robust reductant and oxidant.
