      Since the 19th century, a significant amount of research has been conducted on the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event, the mass extinction that ended the dinosaur-dominated Mesozoic Era and set the stage for the Age of Mammals, or Cenozoic Era.A chronology of this research is presented here. Paleontologists have recognized that a significant transition occurred between the . Two new species of pectinid bivalves, Camptochlamys alaskensis and Chlamys aquilonia, are present in shallow-marine deposits near Ocean Point, northeastern Alaska, at about 70°N precise age of these deposits is debatable, but paleontological and isotopic age estimates indicate placement near the Cretaceous–Tertiary boundary.

      The Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary has always been considered to be exceptional and linked to special events and mechanisms where catastrophes have often been advocated. The boundary stratotype, Stevns Klint in Denmark, has been paleomagnetically analysed. The C/T boundary is now given an absolute age of m.y.

The Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event, also known as the Cretaceous–Tertiary (K–T) extinction, was a sudden mass extinction of three-quarters of the plant and animal species on Earth, approximately 66 million years ago.

With the exception of some ectothermic species such as the sea turtles and crocodilians, no tetrapods weighing more than 25 kilograms (55. ISBN: OCLC Number: Notes: Symposium was sponsored by the Danish Natural Science Research Council.

Kosanke, Aureal T. Cross. K–T extinction, abbreviation of Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction, also called K–Pg extinction or Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction, a global extinction event responsible for eliminating approximately 80 percent of all species of animals at or very close to the boundary between the Cretaceous and Paleogene periods, about 66 million years ago.

The K–T extinction was characterized by the. This was the fifth mass extinction event, called the Cretaceous-Tertiary Mass Extinction, or K-T Extinction for short. Although the Permian Mass Extinction, also known as the "Great Dying," was much larger in the number of Cretaceous-Tertiary Boundary Events Symposium.

book that went extinct, the K-T Extinction is the one most people remember because of public fascination with dinosaurs. Abstract. Most of Cretaceous macro-invertebrate groups such as ammonites, inoceramids, belemnites, and rudists whow a gradual decline towards the C/T boundary, and some of them disappear long before the boundary level itself.

It may be called the K/T extinction event or K/Pg event for short. This is the famous event which killed the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period. "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.

Sepkoski argues that the increase in diversity discourse that began in the s was linked to the discovery that sudden extinction events, such as the one at the Cretaceous–Tertiary boundary more than 60 million years ago, could drastically reduce the number of species on Earth.

The ammonites that Alvarez et al. () claim to have become extinct simultaneously with the iridium-rich clay at Stevns Klint (after redefining the section contrary to several authors in the Copenhagen Cretaceous/ Tertiary Boundary Event Symposium volumes) may also have been coupled with events taking place in the mixed layer.THE CRETACEOUS-TERTIARY BOUNDARY EVENT Until quite recently, the terminal Cretaceous extinctions were a subject that was discussed almost exclusively by paleontologists.

Mary McMahon Last Modified Date: Aug The Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event was a mass extinction which occurred an estimated million years ago, wiping out a substantial number of the species on Earth. Estimates of the severity of the event vary, with some biologists suggesting that as many as 85% of plant and animal species might have been lost during .
