Euxinia or euxinic conditions occur when water is both anoxic and sulfidic. This means that there is no oxygen (O2) and a raised level of free hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Euxinic bodies of water are frequently strongly stratified, have an oxic, highly productive, thin surface layer, and have anoxic, sulfidic bottom water. The word euxinia is derived from the Greek name for the Black Sea (Εὔξεινος Πόντος (Euxeinos Pontos)) which translates to "hospitable sea". Euxinic deep water is a key component of the Canfield ocean, a model of oceans during the Proterozoic period (known as the Boring Billion) proposed by Donald Canfield, an American geologist, in 1998. There is still debate within the scientific community on both the duration and frequency of euxinic conditions in the ancient oceans. Euxini

  • Si definisce euxinico (dal greco "ξινός", che significa "aspro") un ambiente inizialmente ricco di vita nel quale si verifica un evento anossico. Con l'aumentare degli organismi viventi, l'ossigeno può diventare insufficiente fino alla completa scomparsa di ogni forma di vita. Si ha come risultato un ambiente povero di ossigeno con depositi di resti di organismi viventi.
