Maxwell Lechte Makes Ice Age Breakthrough

Posted on: Tue 10 Dec 2019

Hundreds of millions of years ago, the Earth underwent a transformation known as Snowball Earth.

Evidence from the Flinders Ranges, the Namibian Desert and Death Valley suggests the existence of ‘oxygen oases’ during Snowball Earth.

Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at McGill University, Maxwell Lechte joins Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to elaborate on his research.
