Dinosaur Extinction: One More Hypothesis
Preview not available

Abstract

Attention is called to the great destruction that resulted from a meteorite impact in Siberia in 1908. A larger impact would cause more widespread destruction. Several larger impacts may have occurred in geologic time. The survivals and extinctions at the close of the Cretaceous are such as might be expected to result from intensely hot winds such as would be generated by extra large meteoritic or planetesimal impacts. It is suggested that, when the various hypotheses as to dinosaur extinction are being considered, this one be added to the others.
