Good day,

I would like to ask if there is any reliable model/study of the scale
of destruction in the Hell Creek environment (i. e. eastern Montana,
Wyoming or Dakotas, which were located about 3500 km away from the
Chicxulub impact epicentre 66 m. y .a.)? Which effects would be the

event? Thank you very much, Tom
