Mid-Ocean Ridges And Vulcanic Eruptions

Scientists may have found the smoking gun that ties massive volcanic eruptions in Siberia to the huge Permian extinction, known as the Great Dying. Researchers have discovered that chemicals pumped out of the volcanoes created acid rain that led to the death of some 70 percent of life on land and 90 percent of sea life, according to the study published in Geology. This study also mentions the link between volcanic activity and other great extinction events.
