What Killed the Dinosaurs?. K/T Extinction Boundary. 65 million years ago, earth experienced a global mass extinction event: dinosaurs disappeared
Slide 1

What Killed the Dinosaurs?

Slide 2

K/T Extinction Boundary 65 million years back, earth encountered a worldwide mass eradication occasion: dinosaurs vanished that annihilation characterizes the limit between the Cretaceous and Tertiary (curtailed K and T) topographical periods and, a more extensive scale, the limit between the Mesozoic and Cenozoic times.

Slide 3

The reason for the K-T annihilations is one of the considerable puzzles in science, and researchers have proposed numerous sorts of speculations to represent it. They extend from space rock or comet impacts, volcanism, ocean level changes, supernova blasts, without any end in sight.

Slide 4

What Is a Mass Extinction? a scene in developmental history where more than half of every known specie living around then went terminated in a brief timeframe (under 2 million years or something like that).

Slide 5

Permian-Triassic elimination Life on Earth about was wiped out - an expected 90% of all species living around then were smothered. Trilobites were the prevailing marine life form; wiped out.

Slide 6

CSI: Dinosaur Demise The Fossil Record - It\'s not immaculate, holes Time Resolution: deteriorates with expanding age; slow decay of dinosaurs versus a sudden disaster is practically obstinate Falsifiability - Sad however genuine: numerous "theories" about dinosaur annihilation sound very persuading and may even be right, be that as it may, as you probably are aware, are not by any stretch of the imagination science in the event that they can\'t be tried and misrepresented if untrue.

Slide 7

Wrong Hypotheses That Have Been Tested Dinosaurs got so darned enormous that they pulverized themselves Mammals outcompeted the dinosaurs Mammals ate the greater part of the dinosaurs eggs Cosmic beams slaughtered the dinosaurs

Slide 8

Common Ground There was worldwide climatic change; nature transformed from a warm, mellow one in the Mesozoic to a cooler, more fluctuated one in the Cenozoic Many life forms; both marine and earthbound, vertebrate and invertebrate; went terminated At or close to the K/T limit, there was iridium, stunned quartz, tektites, and a sediment layer was found in numerous ranges (confirm for broad timberland fires), all steady with a calamitous occasion

Slide 9

Iridium spike at K/T limit Iridium is a component that happens in the Earths covering in just small extents, yet is considerably more regular in chondrite shooting stars. Profound volcanoes additionally a source

Slide 10

Shocked Quartz High weights cause what is known as stun transformative nature, this misshapes the structure of the quartz and makes parallel laminar swells. It is discovered everywhere throughout the world, not simply locally. No different procedure on the planet makes this sort of quartz. Meteors; volcanoes?

Slide 11

Tektites are actually happening silica glass shaped amid the effect of a meteor. Likewise framed from volcanic emissions

Slide 12

Cosmic Catastrophes Tektites are shaped when liquid material is infused into the environment and cools before touching the ground Volcanoes, meteors are a source Psychically they are utilized for extraterrestrial correspondence, astral travel, and clear imagining.

Slide 13

Dinosaurs on Fire There is an expansive residue layer connected with the K/T limit. This layer is predictable with calamitous flames that may have cleared the surface of the earth right now. Such a fire would have slaughtered most huge earthly creatures.

Slide 14

Nuclear Winter Lingering airborne flotsam and jetsam is accepted to have activated murkiness and a decrease in the worldwide temperature

Slide 15

Intrinsic Gradualists: CSI Volcanoes

Slide 16

Deccan Traps Volcanism About 65 million years prior, the mantle crest that offered ascend to the Reunion hotspot fountain of liquid magma smoldered its way through earth\'s outside layer, flooding western India and encompassing territories with the Deccan Traps surge basalts.

Slide 17

Deccan Traps Volcanism Rapid ejection of the immense Deccan Traps magma fields would have overflowed earth\'s surface with CO2, overpowering surficial frameworks and sinks, activating fast K-T move nursery warming, concoction changes in the seas (McLean, 1985a, b, c; 1988, 1995), and the K-T mass annihilations. This expanded volcanism could have sufficiently made clean and sediment to shut out daylight; adding to the climatic change. Wellspring of Iridium; can clarify iridium spike Source of tektites Shocked quartz; perhaps a source

Slide 18

Plate Tectonics Major changes in the association of the mainland plates (mainland float) were happening at the K-T limit. The seas (particularly the Interior Seaway in North America) were encountering a relapse; they were retreating from the land. A less mellow atmosphere would have been the outcome, and this would have taken quite a while. Real plate movement is predictable with major volcanic action

Slide 19

Extrinsic Catastrophists: CSI Asteroids

Slide 20

Extrinsic Catastrophists This side of the discussion holds that a definitive reason for the K-T annihilation was extraneous, which means of an extraterrestrial nature, and disastrous, which means genuinely sudden and punctuated. The primary speculation was proposed in 1980 by (among others) Luis and Walter Alvarez, geologists at the University of California at Berkeley.

Slide 21

The Alvarez Hypothesis A huge extraterrestrial protest slammed into the Earth, its effect hurling enough tidy to bring about the climatic change. The iridium layer is the thing that incited the Alvarez group to accuse a space rock affect for the eradication - space rocks and comparative extraterrestrial bodies are higher in iridium content than the Earth\'s covering, so they assumed that the iridium layer must be made out of the tidy from the vaporized meteor. No pit was found, yet it was accepted that one existed that was around 65 million years of age and 100 kilometers (around 65 miles) in distance across.

Slide 22

Where Is the Smoking Gun?

Slide 23

Subducted? Confirm evacuated!

Slide 24

CHICXULUB CRATER Survey business related to oil investigation in 1981 initially distinguished concentric rings of gravitational peculiarities around the northwest bank of Yucatan. Hildebrand (1991) found two concentric rings which recommended an external edge of 180 km.

Slide 25

The Smoking Gun! Approximately 65 million years prior, a 10 to 12 km in size space rock or comet slammed on the Yucatan stage and framed the > 200 km in measurement Chicxulub cavity. In the event that a 10km breadth protest affected at the time when it struck it would have a speed of about 100,000 km/h.

Slide 26

Magnitude of Impact The K/T affect, as it is currently alluded to, brought about 100 million megatons of vitality. Identical to the vitality of 300 million atomic weapons

Slide 27

Impact Forces Computer model of the Chicxulub affect demonstrating the raising fireball and CO 2 crest and ejecta shade material (from Alvarez, Claeys and Kieffer, Science 1995)

Slide 28

CONCLUSIONS There has been no settlement to the issue in this way, and no unmistakable one is predictable. Both sides claim to hold the greater part of defenders in science; it appears that (significantly over-summing up) numerous scientistss incline towards the characteristic side, while numerous cosmologists and physicists support the extraneous side, and geologists are most likely equitably split between the two.
