Why do banded iron formation not form today? a. There is too much free oxygen in the air b. The oceans are less acidic because there is less atmospheric CO2 c. There is less iron on the surface d. Banded iron formation are deposited in modern settings e. The earth is not warm enough to deposit banded iron formations. Banded iron-formations (BIFs) occur in the Precambrian geologic record over a wide time span. Beginning at Ga (Isua, West Greenland), they are part of Archean cratons and range in age from about until Ga. Their overall volume reaches a maximum at .

  Precambrian solution photochemistry, inverse segregation, and banded iron formations A. G. CAIRNS-SMITH 1 Nature volume , pages – () Cite this article. Banded iron formations (or BIFs) are a distinctive type of rock often found in (Precambrian) sedimentary rocks.. They consist of repeated thin layers of iron oxides, either magnetite (Fe 3 O 4) or hematite (Fe 2 O 3), alternating with bands of iron-poor shale and chert.. Some of the oldest known rock formations, formed over 3, million years ago (mya), include banded iron layers.

Ring-in-ring structures in Australian Early Precambrian banded iron formation (BIF) were identified as bubbling mud wavelets, which lithified during temporary exposure, contradicting the alleged BIF deep ocean origin. Least altered BIFs consist of alternating chert laminae with, and without iron oxides (or carbonates).Cited by: 9.   For over 2 billion years this went on, until the iron ran out, and then the oxygen bubbled up into the atmosphere. The clear, oxygenated atmosphere we know dates from about 1, million years ago, after two-thirds of Earth history. The vast layers of iron minerals stayed behind in the banded iron formations, or BIFs.

A typical banded iron formation consists of repeated, thin layers (a few millimeters to a few centimeters in thickness) of silver to black iron oxides, either magnetite (Fe 3 O 4) or hematite (Fe 2 O 3), alternating with bands of iron-poor shales and cherts, often red in color, of similar thickness, and containing microbands (sub-millimeter) of iron y: iron oxides, shales and cherts.

Banded-iron formation (BIF), chemically precipitated sediment, typically thin bedded or laminated, consisting of 15 percent or more iron of sedimentary origin and layers of chert, chalcedony, jasper, or formations occur on all the continents and usually are older than billion years.

They also are highly metamorphosed. Banded iron-formations (BIFs) occur in the Precambrian geologic record over a wide time span. Beginning at Ga (Isua, West Greenland), they are part of Archean cratons and range in age from about until by: Similarities between Proterozoic (~ Gyr) and Archean (> Gyr) banded iron-formations are probably more significant than their differences.

The contrasts largely reflect differences in the tectonic settings of Proterozoic and Archean terrains. Archean banded iron-formations are not as thick nor laterally as extensive as the major Proterozoic by: The Precambrian (or Pre-Cambrian, sometimes abbreviated pЄ, or Cryptozoic) is the earliest part of Earth's history, set before the current Phanerozoic Eon.

The Precambrian is so named because it preceded the Cambrian, the first period of the Phanerozoic eon, which is named after Cambria, the Latinised name for Wales, where rocks from this age were first studied.

The article “Origin of Precambrian Iron Formations” (Econ. Geology, –) reports the following data on total Fe for four types of iron formation (1 = carbonate, 2 = silicate, 3 = magnetite, hematite). During the past several years, many advances have been made in the fields of isotopic age dating, geochemistry and sedimentology which are significant to our understanding of the early history of the earth and to the origin of early Precambrian banded iron by: 2.

Banded iron formations (BIF) represent the largest source of iron in the world. They formed throughout the Precambrian, and today are globally distributed on the remnants of the ancient cratons. The first BIF dates back to at least – billion years.
