Revisiting the sedimentary record of the rise of diatoms

Sophie Westacott, Noah Planavsky, Ming-Yu Zhao & Pincelli Hull
Diatoms are a major primary producer in the modern oceans and play a critical role in the marine silica cycle. Their rise to dominance is recognized as one of the largest shifts in Cenozoic marine ecosystems, but the timing of this transition is debated. Here, we use a diagenetic model to examine the effect of sedimentation rate and temperature on the burial efficiency of biogenic silica over the past 66 million years (i.e., the Cenozoic)....
