Re: Mega eruption may have wiped out [Cambrian] life


Said to correspond to the Early-Middle Cambrian boundary... but...

Australian geologists used the chemical signatures of the far-flung
basalt lava rocks and their ages to connect them to a single huge
volcanic eruptive episode between 505 and 508 million years ago...

... http://www.stratigraphy.org/gssp.htm doesn't have a series boundary between ~ 513 and ~ 501 Ma ago.
