Hydrothermally induced $^{34}$S enrichment in pyrite as an alternative explanation of the Late-Devonian sulfur isotope excursion in South China

Several Late Devonian sedimentary successions host pyrite with highly positive sulfur isotope values (δ34Spyrite). These anomalous values have been linked to marine anoxia, low sulfate concentrations in seawater, or aerobic re-oxidation of dissolved …

New constraints on the onset age of the Emeishan LIP volcanism and implications for the Guadalupian mass extinction

The onset of the Middle Permian Emeishan Large Igneous Province (ELIP), is commonly implicated in the Guadalupian mass extinction, one of the largest Phanerozoic extinction events, yet the contribution of the ELIP to this biotic event remains …
