The Cretaceous-Tertiary Event and Other Catastrophes in Earth History, Issue 307

Geological Society of America, Jan 1, 1996 - Science - 569 pages
"This volume atempts to explore and clarify the relationship 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 Cretaceou-Teriary boundary, and the buried Chicxulub structure that is now consensually deemed to be of impact origin and to be intimately related to that boundary."
