Blackburn et al. CAMP - 2013-04-17

Terrence J. Blackburn, Samuel A. Bowring & Noah M. McLean
This dataset represents zircon U-Pb geochronologic data for Central Atlantic Magmatic Province (CAMP) magmatism from seven sites in eastern North America and one in Morocco. These data provide (i) a precise determination of the onset and duration of CAMP magmatism and (ii) a test of the reliability of the astronomical time scale in order to provide a high-precision age model for the CAMP - end Triassic extinction interval.

Zircon U-Pb Geochronology Links the End-Triassic Extinction with the Central Atlantic Magmatic Province

The end-Triassic extinction is characterized by major losses in both terrestrial and marine diversity, setting the stage for dinosaurs to dominate Earth for the next 136 million years. Despite the approximate coincidence between this extinction and flood basalt volcanism, existing geochronologic dates have insufficient resolution to confirm eruptive rates required to induce major climate perturbations. Here, we present new zircon uranium-lead (U-Pb) geochronologic constraints on the age and duration of flood basalt volcanism within the...
