Reconstructing latitudinal terrestrial temperature gradients at the Cretaceous-Paleogene Boundary: testing the 'Equable Earth' hypothesis
Principal Investigator: Jerrett, Rhodri
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The research team have chosen this site in the Northwest Territories to collect coal samples from, as it contains the Cretaceous-Paleogene sandstone and iridium-anomaly that places the ages of these coals in that period. The team will access pristine coal samples by excavating the weathered rock back by 1 m (using spade and shovel). They will then sample a vertical profile by collecting coal sampl...
