May GEOLOGY media highlights

The May issue of Geology covers a wide variety of potentially newsworthy
subjects. Topics include: discovery in the U.K. of Earth's earliest
recorded wildfire; new perspectives on high levels of atmospheric oxygen
in the late Paleozoic; new paleoclimatological and fossil record
evidence documenting migration of snakehead ("killer") fish; insights
from a study of 300 million-year-old rocks in Newfoundland regarding the
emergence of upland forests; and dating of Neoproterozoic glaciations in
south China.

Meteorite from Mars moon

A meteorite that fell in Yemen in 1980 could have fallen from Phobos,
the larger of the two Martian moons. After two decades of puzzling over
the mystery rock, a Russian researcher believes it to be the only piece
of rock to have been found on Earth from a Martian moon.
