    Tektites in Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary rocks on Haiti By G.A. Izett1, F.J-M.R. Maurrasse2, F.E. Lichte3, G.P. Meeker4, and Robin Bates Open-File Report This report is preliminary and has not been reviewed for conformity with U.S. Geological Survey editorial standards ^ U.S. Geological Survey, MS , Denver, CO Cited by: Altered tektites produced by the Chicxulub impact as preserved at the Dogie Creek, Wyoming, Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary locality. The scale bar shows divisions of millimetres. At this locality the ejecta layer from the Chicxulub crater is ~2 cm thick and at some places preserves the shapes of the individual tektites that compose the layer.

Author(s). The type locality of this iridium anomaly is near Raton, New Mexico.

(Alvarez, L., et al.,Extraterrestrial Cause for the Cretaceous-Tertiary Extinction, Sciencep ) Since this discovery, iridium-rich clay layers have been found at the K/T boundary in rocks all over the world, making the hypothesis for a planet-wide ecological catastrophe caused by an asteroid or comet impact much stronger.

*K/T boundary event* The impact of an asteroid, about 10–11 km in diameter, that struck the Earth [1] about 65 Ma ago near Chicxulub, on the coast of northern Yucatan, Mexico.

Initial evidence for the impact was an iridium-enriched layer of clays, found in many parts of the world. K–T extinction, abbreviation of Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction, also called K–Pg extinction or Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction, a global extinction event responsible for eliminating approximately 80 percent of all species of animals at or very close to the boundary between the Cretaceous and Paleogene periods, about 66 million years ago.

The possible origin of the pumice in the layer is drift pumice, reworked pumice and primary pumice fallout during the tsunami run-up. This unique sediment layer is often observed in near-source tsunami deposits of volcanic origin.Integrating Research and Education > Cretaceous > Guided Activities for Students > K-T Extinction and the K-T "Boundary" Author Profile.
