Yeah, that would do it!

So, where and how has it since been re-sequestered? Hard to imagine subduction as an adequate mechanism for all of it.

the number of hypotheses about the PT crisis fast approaches the number of workers on the problem.:ninja:

The article itself is paywalled?

I like interdisciplinary research and something on both element cycling during subduction and the PT event is kinda interesting to me

Do the authors pose storage in the subcontinental lithospheric mantle?
