The study of Yarrabubba crater provides scientists with information about the earth’s last ice age

The study of Yarrabubba crater provides scientists with information about the earth’s last ice age

The world’s oldest crater which is located in Australia’s western outback has been studied extensively by scientists and geologists for a while in order to find out information about the earth and the life forms surviving on it. After extensive studies they have come to the conclusion that the meteor that had created this crater had a huge role in ending the last severe ice age on earth. This also played a part in the creation of complex life forms that survive till today while the more basic life forms died down.

"Now we know the Yarrabubba crater was made right at the end of what's commonly referred to as the early Snowball Earth -- a time when the atmosphere and oceans were evolving and becoming more oxygenated and when rocks deposited on many continents recorded glacial conditions.The age of the Yarrabubba impact matches the demise of a series of ancient glaciations. After the impact, glacial deposits are absent in the rock record for 400 million years ," said Chris Kirkland, study co-author and professor at Curtin University's School of Earth and Planetary Sciences in Perth, Australia.

The impact of the blazing meteor on the earth’s surface must have played a huge role in sending out massive amounts of water vapour into the atmosphere. Being a greenhouse gas, this water vapour helped in rising the temperatures and hence bringing an end to the ice age.
