Second, given the nature of the sedimentary record in the Deccan Traps, the
time resolution on issues like extinctions is, to say the least,
lousy. Intertrappen beds are so few in number, and so thin, that all one
has is a few tiny snapshots of the fauna. >>
Yep, agree with both sentiments here. Nevertheless, there is data on Indian
dinosaurs at the K-T boundary, and such as it is, it shows an abrupt
extinction sometime during the Deccan volcanism.
