The main scientific goal is to create a self-consistent model explaining the genesis and timing of the abrupt establishment of the modern Earth system through early Palaeoproterozoic time. This will be achieved utilising a multidisciplinary, international research group to study drillcore obtained from Palaeoprotrozoic volcano-sedimentary successions in Fennoscandia.
Keywords: Asia, Russia, Fennoscandia, Climate Change, Early Life, Earth Evolution, Global Environment, Global Events, Paleoproterozoic,
Geologists Dmitry Rychanchik and Alexander Romashkin from Karelian Science Centre in Petrozavodsk, who were the backbone of our filed operations.
Getting ready for sampling party starting March 2nd in Trondheim

3.6 km of core has been split, photographed and lithologically described by logging the core centimeter by centimeter. After months of vigorous activity, the core repository is strangely quiet.
