Abstract A dramatic change in atmospheric composition has been postulated because of global carbon cycle disruption during the Cretaceous (K)–Tertiary (T) transition following the Chicxulub impact and Deccan Trap eruptions. Here, pedogenic carbonates were collected from drill core of a borehole (SK-1 (N)) straddling the Late Cretaceous and early Paleocene strata in the Songliao Basin, northeast China, to reconstruct atmospheric CO 2 concentrations using a paleosol paleobarometer. Our estimates… Expand

Mass Extinction at the Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) Boundary
One of the “Big Five” mass extinctions in the Phanerozoic Eon occurred at the Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) boundary (66.0 million years ago). The K–Pg mass extinction was triggered by a meteoriteExpand

An atmospheric pCO2 reconstruction across the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary from leaf megafossils
TLDR
It is calculated that the postboundary pCO2 rise is most consistent with the instantaneous transfer of ≈4,600 Gt C from the lithic to the atmospheric reservoir by a large extraterrestrial bolide impact, which implies that severe and abrupt global warming during the earliest Paleocene was an important factor in biotic extinction at the KTB.

Correlated terrestrial and marine evidence for global climate changes before mass extinction at the Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary
TLDR
Paleotemperatures for the last ≈1.1 million years of the Cretaceous are estimated by using fossil plants from North Dakota and employ paleomagnetic stratigraphy to correlate the results to foraminiferal paleoclimatic data from four middle- and high-latitude sites, suggesting a coupling of pCO2 and temperature.
