Re: Deccan eruptions + sunken micro-continents from Mesozoic Gondwana
So what's that yellow stuff in the dead dino's mouth--Sulfur?? I have no
doubt the Deccan traps eruptions caused many local extinctions. But if
sulfur dioxide spread worldwide, wouldn't there be some chemical signature
revealing that (like the iridium layer)?
