The Cretaceous-Tertiary Event and Other Catastrophes

Full Title: The Cretaceous-Tertiary Event and other Catastrophes in Earth History
Editors: Graham Ryder, David Fastovsky, and Stefan Gartner
This volume attempts to explore and clarify the relationships among the geological records, the extinctions, and the causes of catastrophes for life in Earth's history. Most of the papers address the geological record and the extinctions across the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary, and the buried Chicxulub structure that is now consensually deemed to be of impact origin and to be intimately related to that boundary. Some of the papers are devoted to paleontological, stratigraphical, structural, petrological, geochemical, and theoretical analyses of this boundary and to what happened at Chicxulub. Other papers address other catastrophic boundaries or events, and extinctions that are not related to impact. (From Lunar & Planetary Inst. meeting—New Developments in KT Event...,Houston, TX Feb. 1994.)
