RE: Scientists conclude asteroid, not volcanoes, wiped out dinosaurs



There are about a dozen or so papers (so far) on the interbedded Trappen flora 
and fauna of the Deccan region.  You will have to be more specific.  ;-)

Those flows have many intedded sedimentary units (not just lacustrine), which 
commonly contain dinosaurs and other critters.

I seem to recall (can't remember the exact reference) fossil bearing lacustrine 
deposits being found in between basaltic episodes on the Indian mainland during 
the Deccan Traps eruptions.

Anyone know anything more about that publication?
