The project is focused on the oxygene crises of word’s oceans in the geoglogical history of the Earth. Geological record of anoxic conditions in the oceanic sediments is analysed by using of high-quality analytical procedures at level of biomarker studies, heavy metal isotopes (Mo, V, Ru, U), trace elements, etc. Geochemical methods are completed by biostratigraphic research, study of environmental proxies of marine microfauna, models of oceanographic circulation for particular geological periods, etc.
