Answers

  • 1980

  • Lahar, pyroclastic flow, flooding, ash

  • Slope, precipitation, human impact


Mass extinction cretaceous paleogene extinction k t
Mass Extinction Cretaceous–Paleogeneextinction (K-T)

What killed the dinosaurs?

(Formally called the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction)


Maps

Meteor impact 65.5 million years ago.


What is…

  • A Meteor impact in Mexico 65.5 million years ago.

  • Killed 65-70% of all species on Earth.

  • 90% of everything ever alive is now extinct! Extinctions are common.

    • Five major extinctions in the past and many smaller ones.


When…

  • Earth is 4.6 Billion Years old.

  • Life on Earth began in the Paleozoic (570 million years ago)

  • Dinosaurs were present on Earth around 245 million years ago and lived for about 180 million years.

  • Humans have only been on Earth for maybe 10,000 years!


Time line
Time line

  • Very controversial!

    • Some say fast (few years) some say slow (millions of years)?!

  • The fossil record is incomplete, so difficult to say something is present or not.


What causes this event
What causes this event?

  • Meteor (widely accepted)

  • Volcanism (flood basalts)

    • Deccan Traps (dark purple)

  • Climate Change

    • Atmospheric changes from othercauses.

  • Sea level change

    • Sea level fell after 65 mya

  • Mega-Tsunami

    • Deposits of sea sediments in mountains of Mexico


Who is affected
Who is affected?

  • Marine Invertebrates - 60% species extinct.

  • Fish - 80% survived

  • Terrestrial Invertebrates – Not determined

  • Plants - 57% plants extinct

  • Amphibians – Most survived

  • Mammals -

  • Reptiles – Almost all species become extinct.

    • Two major survivors

      • testudines - turtles

      • lepidosaurs – lizards and snakes.


Facts

  • All current data and theories are based off of fossil evidence.

  • The K-T boundary is identifiable in North America:

    • By lack of ferns before, but abundant after.

    • Hell creek, Montana

    • Pollen levels in rocks and ice

Hells creek formation


What if
What If...

  • 5 previous major mass extinctions

  • Some say we are in one now?

    • Climate change

    • Sea level change

    • Loss of resources

    • Over population
