    Episode 4 of the Early Earth series, this video features Dr. Russell Shapiro (California State University, Chico) in the Snowy Range, WY, discussing ancient Stromatolites (Laminated accretionary structures that are either biotic or abiotic in origin) as a type of trace fossil, from 2.1 Billion years ago. Oxygen levels in the atmosphere on the planet were not yet to their current concentrations. The earth would have been inhospitable for humans and other macrofauna. ------------------------------------------ Produced: Russell Shapiro and John Spear Directored, filmed, and edited by Dave Vuono ------------------------------------------ Music: This video features the song “A Stranger's Map of Texas” by Michael Chapman and The Woodpiles, available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial license.

      Discover how Dr. Philipp Heck and team members from the Geological Survey of India measure the depth of ice on Lake Untersee and study the lakebed. This is the fifth installment in a series of video journals by Dr. Heck documenting the 2012 joint expedition between The Field Museum, the Geological Survey of India, the Russian Antarctic Expedition, and the SETI Institute. The expedition was sponsored by The Tawani Foundation. During the expedition, team members organized a search for meteorites and sampled stromatolites (living fossils) that can found in Antarctica's glaciers and lakes. The team's continuing research aims to shed light on the formation of our solar system and the origins of life on our planet.

          Dive into the frigid waters of Lake Untersee with Dr. Dale Andersen to meet a living community of some of Earth’s oldest fossils—stromatolites—and learn more about the different kinds of cyanobacteria that create them.

            Some footage of my dive yesterday at Pavilion Lake. Stromatolite formations dot the bottom of the lake here. Stromatolites provide the most ancient records of life on Earth by fossil remains which date from more than 3.5 billion years ago. Pavilion Lake has the largest known freshwater stromatolites and has been researched by NASA as part of xenobiology research. NASA, the Canadian Space Agency and numerous universities from around the world are collaborating on a project centered around studying microbialite life in the lakes.
