I know there has been lots of evidence for an impact lately with these
new core samples, but haven't they ruled out Chicxulub as the source
because it is already overlain with Cretaceous material? Perhaps some
other, as yet unidentified site in the Gulf of Mexico? Maybe it is under
water now but wasn't at the time? Gee, maybe even the impact had
something to do with the formation of oil in the region (squeezing prior
sediments or something)?
Just a lay persons musings, but I wish they'd agree on Chicxulub one way
or the other.
