Microbial life in the atmosphere may well have had its origins in the Middle Precambrian, involving mostly prokaryotic organisms, if not entirely. However, it is difficult to understand how long their newly developed vigor and robustness could keep the prokaryotic life forms alive in the atmosphere. Water and nutrients could have been found within clouds, but the stratosphere still did not have a well-developed O3 layer to absorb harmful UV radiation. 1 Because land-to-air lofting of microbial particles is more efficient than ocean-to-air lofting,1,18 the new lofting mechanism had the potential to increase appreciably the numbers and density of microorganisms in the Middle Precambrian atmosphere.
