Re: SVP press coverage

I just wrote:

There's a test for this: there must be an unconformity exactly
under the K-Pg boundary glauconite.

I should have read on! There _is_ one in that very core:

"The absence of an Ir anomaly at the KT boundary is due to a hiatus that spans the lower Danian (lower part of Pla) and probably the uppermost Maastrichtian interval."

At the end of page 2, Keller assumes a drastic spike in Deccan volcanism right at the boundary. This is strange, as is the absence of any temperature change at the same time in the same picture. I've never read about this anywhere... and Keller herself doesn't tell it either, at least not on this or the next page.
