Crater-filling as a Probable Cause of Giant Tsunamis at the Cretaceous / Tertiary Boundary

Abstract

Introduction: A great number of Creta-ceous/Tertiary (K/T) boundary proximal deposits were reported from the shallow and deep-sea environments around the Gulf of Mexico [e. g., 1]. Because large tsunamis are one of the major consequences of the impact into the ocean, influence of the tsunamis is expected to have been recorded in these deposits [e.g., 1 to 7… (More)
