AbstractThe Cryogenian Period (717-635 Ma) experienced two low-latitude "snowball Earth" glaciations, the Sturtian and the Marinoan of contrasting 57 and <16 Myr durations, respectively. A lack of reliable age controls on extensional tectonics and associated magmatic rocks during the Marinoan has hampered an understanding of the deglaciation. Furthermore, although deglaciation is generally assumed to have occurred once ongoing magmatism accumulated enough atmospheric CO2, as suggested by cap carbonates, specific geologic evidence linking volcanic events with deglaciation are lacking. Here, we present high-precision zircon geochronology with chemical abrasion-isotope-dilution isotope ratio mass spectrometry that indicates an extensive and thick sequence of rift-related magmatic rocks in South Qinling, Central China, erupted 2-6 Myr before the termination of the Marinoan. Climate modeling proposes a scenario explaining why the Marinoan was the shorter snowball and how volcanism may have driven the deglaciation. Plain Language Summary Volcanic CO2 and dust emissions have been regarded as the major driver for Marinoan deglaciation. Most of CO2 outgassing is associated with seafloor spreading and subduction (arc magmatism), which are ongoing processes on geological timescales. To drastically increase CO2 emissions, there must have been many active rift zones during Marinoan glaciation. We provide age constraints on a previously little-known major Marinoan rift-related volcanic suite in South Qinling, which reveals volcanic activity lasting 4 Myr and ending 2 Myr before the termination of the Marinoan snowball Earth. Climate modeling provides constraints for the ice-age duration deduced from the geological setting.
