How do we know when and how the dinosaurs died out? This presentation covers information that is beyond what you can find online. I was fortunate to speak with experts in the field who filled in questions I've had about the event(s) and evidence. Now you too can have this information! Presented in uncluttered, yet thorough slides with pictures included. Content includes:
-What is the K-Pg boundary (formerly known as the K-T boundary)?
-What is a mass extinction?
-Explains the 5th extinction.
-Thorough explanation of the Alvarez impact hypothesis (idea that an asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs) with multiple sources of evidence.
-Explanation of the crater site with site map included.
-Relative dating vs. absolute dating
-Information about the site where Alvarez took his samples to test.
-What is radiometric dating?
-Paleontology process: How scientists get their samples
-Ending quotes from Alvarez
Great for evolution, mass extinctions, timeline of Earth, fossils, scientific method, and general science (because everyone loves dinosaurs).
