Aquatic Survival Refs?

Hi All -

OK, I'm racking my brains -- and my library -- trying to find references that SPECIFICALLY address the issue of terrestrial tetrapods with aquatic adaptations/paleoecologies (e.g., crocs, champsosaurs, amphibians, etc.) preferentially surviving the K/T extinction event over taxa that lack aquatic adaptations/paleoecologies. I know that it's been mentioned, but I'm looking for papers that discuss it in some detail, ostensibly with a mechanism proposed. I figued if anyone would be able to recall something I'm missing, it'd be someone on this list! Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
