In recent years geologists have put a lot of effort trying to study the evolution of earth using different techniques studying rocks, gases, and water at different channels like mantle, lithosphere and atmosphere. Some of the ways are Estimation of heat flux between the atmosphere and sea ice, Modelling global temperature changes, Groundwater monitoring networks, etc. But algorithms involving the study of earth’s evolution have been a debated topic for decades. Also, there is distinct research on studying the mantle, lithosphere, and atmosphere using isotopic fractionation which this paper will take into consideration to form genes at the former stage. This factor of isotopic fractionation could be molded in QGA to study the earth’s evolution. We combined these factors because the gases containing these isotopes move from mantle to lithosphere or atmosphere through gaps or volcanic eruptions contributing to it. We are likely to use the Rb/Sr and Sm/Nd ratios to study the evolution of these channels. This paper, in general, provides the idea on gathering some information of temperature changes by using isotopic ratios as chromosomes, in QGA the chromosomes depict the characteristic of a generation. Here these ratios depict the temperature characteristic and other steps of QGA would be molded to study these ratios in the form of temperature changes, which would further signify the evolution of earth based on the study that temperature changes with the change in isotopic ratios. This paper will collect these distinct studies and embed them into an upgraded quantum genetic algorithm called Quantum Genetic Terrain Algorithm or Quantum GTA.
