A scientists May be on the Road to shattering the belief that Light is essential to the origins of new life or r. J Conover of the Marine ecology Laboratory Bedford Institute of oceanography says there la a physical chemical process that presumably produces life by enabling existing life to multiply in the absence of Light. There is a process in the sea that can produce apparently organic particles strictly chemically and without living Organ isms being present Quot he added in an interview. Quot it s nol supposed to happen but apparently it said or. A m Dickie director of the Laboratory the hypothesis is based on evidence gathered from a series of experiments on thousands of analyses Ltd Illette diluting an ii month voyage of the oct Ano graphic vessel Hudson based at the Laboratory. The experiments consisted of the comparison of the total Par tide matter in a Sample of the specific measurements for living organic matter. These latter measurements Are based on an at enzyme system. A More than 10,000 Ocean samples were collected for chemical analysis and study. Until now it has been thought that Light and Green plants were essential to produce new life by the process known As. Photosynthesis. Scientists at Bedford have questioned this because one of the commonest methods off Mea Suring the rate of photosynthesis is times produce results difficult to explain. The problem is that Pho Tasyn thesis seems to occur at times in darkness., something that by All the accepted explanations of the origins of life should not happen. A possible explanation being considered is that some Organ isms can produce organic mat-., ter in either Light or darkness. Another is that a process called Lark fixation takes place by bacterial action in the of Light a lever the exp a nation the Hudson scientists found that in warmer Waters photosynthesis is lower than in cold Waters hut Quot dark fixation Quot is greatly increased a Dickie said the study indicates the total productivity of the seas May be much greater than has been up to about five years ago it had been estimated that the sea was half As productive As the land.
