      CRETACEOUS/TERTIARY BOUNDARY SUMMARY1 Shipboard Scientific Party2 LITHOSTRATIGRAPHY Depositional Environments at the Cretaceous/Tertiary Boundary The Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary occurs within the lower indurated chalk unit of Hole B at about m below sea-floor (mbsf) (Fig. 1). The boundary lies within a cm-long. Cretaceous and Lower Tertiary sedimentary rocks are well exposed in the Tingri-Gyangtse area, tectonically belonging to the central Tibetan Himalayas, to the south of the Indus-Yarlung-Zangbo suture. The Cretaceous Tianba flysch in the Tianba-Jiabula region is correlative with the Giumal Group sandstone in Zanskar, northwestern Size: 9MB.

      Professor Ewan Fordyce is an academic staff member in the Department of Geology whose main research interests are vertebrate paleobiology, especially New Zealand-Southwest Pacific, systematics and phylogeny of Cetacea (whales and dolphins), Cretaceous-Cenozoic paleontology, stratigraphy, paleoecology, paleoceanography and paleoclimates. Cretaceous-Tertiary Boundary. Mass extinctions played a dual role in influencing evolution: culling species and their evolutionary traits and generating open ecospace and new opportunities for survivors (Gould , Raup ). The outcomes have dramatically restructured the biosphere and redirected the course of evolution.

New Zealand stratigraphy has also informally been divided into two 'megasequences'. The Austral Superprovince (Cambrian-Cretaceous) includes all basement rocks and the Zealandia Megasequence (Cretaceous-Holocene) refers to those, younger rocks, that cover Austral Superprovince is divided into the Eastern.

New Zealand Geological History and Southern Hemisphere Oceanography The development of modern Southern Hemisphere geography began in the Cretaceous, beginning with the separation of New Zealand from Gondwana at 80Ma which resulted in isolation of Zealandia from Australia via the Tasman Sea.

New Zealand’s geology became. The Oligocene period saw the maximum submergence of New Zealand by the Tertiary sea. Although the complex internal geological structure of this small section of the earth's crust is the product of all that has happened to it during hundreds of millions of years, the landscape is a comparatively recent development, shaped wholly within the 30 million years or so that have.

The Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event, also known as the Cretaceous–Tertiary (K–T) extinction, was a sudden mass extinction of some three-quarters of the plant and animal species on Earth, approximately 66 million years ago.

With the exception of some ectothermic species such as the leatherback sea turtle and crocodiles, no tetrapods weighing more than 25. The boundary between the Cretaceous and Tertiary periods (the K–T boundary) marks a major change in fossil plants and animals that occurred 65 million years ago. At this time a number of animal groups, including the dinosaurs, became extinct.
