Dinosaur Extinction


Alvarez, W.M., 1997, T-rex and the crater of doom: Princeton, New Jersey, Princeton University Press, 185 p. This book begins with background information on stratigraphy, age dating, gradualistic vs. catastrophic views of earth history, and then proceeds to outline the data and history of the theory that the dinosaur extinction was caused by a meteor impact, as well as the search for and discovery of the crater responsible.
