The question of how life survived these 'Snowball Earth' glaciations
, lasting up to about 50 million years, has puzzled scientists for many decades.
Survival analysis tests indicated that the ages of glaciation
may influence arsenic concentrations.
scenario boundary conditions for flow, energy, and solute transport are the same as used by Bea et al.
have occurred while C[O.sub.2] levels were, according to some models, 10 times higher than they are currently, and the modern low C[O.sub.2] levels during the current glaciation
are abnormal when compared to historic levels during glaciations
Brook presents a review of the work of George Leslie Adkin (1888-1964) on glaciation
and earth movements in the Tararua Range, North Island, New Zealand.
For sure, during the peak of the last glaciation
global sea level was about 400 feet below its current position.

"The first half tells how to interpret signs of mountain-building and glaciation
on the ground.
About 19,000 years ago, at the peak of the most recent glaciation
, ice was over a mile thick in Minnesota.
In the last 2.5 million years, there have been at least five major episodes of glaciation
and melting, the last one only 10,000 to 20,000 years ago.
Depressions in the surface of the land that hold water might have been formed by glaciation
and subsequently fed by surface runoff and springs beneath.
The winning architects in each sector were to bring the best of their national social housing traditions to bear on a delightful forested landscape, permeated by traces of agricultural activity like old dry-stone walls and punctuated by little rounded hills left behind by glaciation
. A real community was to be created which could, in twentieth-century Scandinavian fashion, enjoy the natural landscape as well as having social existence.
