Exploring the use of mercury in reconstructing the environmental impacts of Large Igneous Provinces

Alternative title:
Mercury as a tracer of Large Igneous Province volcanism
Abstract:

Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs) represent geologically rapid emplacements of vast quantities of igneous material into/onto Earth’s crust. There is a marked correlation in the known ages of LIPs and Mesozoic extinctions and other environmental perturbations, suggesting a possible causal link between these events. However, uncertainties in matching LIP basalt ages to the stratigraphic record of Mesozoic events mean that a sedimentary tracer of volcanism would better indicate a precise coincidenc...
