Atmospheric Carbon Injection Linked to End-Triassic Mass Extinction
The end-Triassic mass extinction coincided with a massive release of carbon to the atmosphere and rapid climate change. The end-Triassic mass extinction (~201.4 million years ago), marked by
The global stratotype sections and point (GSSP) for the base of the jurassic system at kuhjoch (Karwendel Mountains, Northern Calcareous Alps, Tyrol, Austria)
The Global Stratotype Section and Point (GSSP) defining the base of the Jurassic System Lower Jurassic Epoch and Hettangian Stage is situated at the Kuhjoch pass, Karwendel Mountains, Northern
The quest for chron E23r at Partridge Island, Bay of Fundy, Canada: CAMP emplacement postdates the end-Triassic extinction event at the North American craton
The Partridge Island stratigraphic section at the Bay of Fundy, Maritime Canada, reveals a continental sedimen- tary succession with the end-Triassic mass extinction level closely followed by basalts
Jurassic climate mode governed by ocean gateway
A new large high-quality oxygen-isotope dataset is presented from an interval that includes previously suggested mode transitions, and it is hypothesized that northward oceanic heat transport was impeded by uplift, triggering Cool Mode conditions more widely.
Mercury evidence for pulsed volcanism during the end-Triassic mass extinction
Pulsatory volcanism, and associated perturbations in the ocean–atmosphere system, likely had profound implications for the rate and magnitude of the end-Triassic mass extinction and subsequent biotic recovery.
