Earliest life may have arisen in ponds, not oceans: Study finds shallow bodies of water were probably more suitable for Earth's first life forms

Researchers report that shallow bodies of water, on the order of 10 centimeters deep, could have held high concentrations of what many scientists believe to be a key ingredient for jump-starting life on Earth: nitrogen.
