- n. The condition of being dysoxic
Sorry, no etymologies found.
This in turn may result in something called marine dysoxia, a phenomenon which kills off oxygen-using animals.
Some experts believe that marine dysoxia may be responsible for major oceanic extinctions.
Before and after the late Paleocene thermal maximum, upwelling and biological productivity were less intense, and seafloor dysoxia was restricted to neritic parts of the basin.
