Ancient bubbles in Pilbara evidence of Earth's 'thinner' atmosphere

Air bubbles trapped in ancient rocks in the Pilbara suggest the Earth's atmosphere was far thinner than previously thought, raising questions about how early Earth stayed warm enough for liquid water to flow 2.7 billion years ago.

The Great Unconformity exposed in Grand Canyon separates the Tapeats Sandstone from ancient Proterozoic rocks. The Great Unconformity represents billion years of missing rock record, either due to erosion or non-deposition.

Grand Canyon Stratigraphy - The Great Unconformity

The Great Unconformity exposed in Grand Canyon separates the Tapeats Sandstone from ancient Proterozoic rocks. The Great Unconformity represents ~1.2 billion years of missing rock record, either due to erosion or non-deposition.
