VOXLER Visualization of Iridium Geobody

Historic Extraterrestrial Cause for Extinction at KT-Boundary due to Iridium Evidence
The dense metallic element Iridium is found in meteorites with much higher abundance than on Earth. This is the basis for the theory that the unusually high abundance of iridium in the clay layer at the geologic sedimentary Cretaceous-Tertiary (KT-Boundary) layer may have been caused by a massive meteorite impact, […]
