New constraints on the Jurassic-Cretaceous boundary in the High Andes using high-precision U-Pb data
The Jurassic-Cretaceous (J-K) boundary is poorly constrained, and is the only Phanerozoic system boundary that lacks an internationally accepted reference stratigraphic section (GSSP). Precise radio-isotopic U-Pb data are unavailable for the earliest stage of the Cretaceous- the Berriasian. The age of the Jurassic-Cretaceous boundary was based on several assumptions, including the relative duration of ammonite zones, the constant spreading rates of magnetic anomalies, and the extrapolation of...[Show more]
