Re: The K-T boundary extinction: bolide or volcano?

Actually, there is convincing evidence for both the meteorite and the Deccan Traps. It is hardly unlikely that both events played some role, especially as they happened fairly close together.

Hi Dave,

I was under the impression that the KT boundary had been found within the
Deccan Traps that therefore spanned the KT. Is this another case of
scientists disagreeing, like the impact theory that also moves around the KT
boundary depending on who's paper you are reading.
