Dinosaurs may have been wiped out by asteroid and volcano

Dinosaurs may have been wiped out by asteroid and volcano



Now, a team of Berkeley-based scientists are suggesting a sort of compromise, and one based on facts and data rather than attempts to smooth over tensions. According to a recent study that will soon be published in Science, researchers suggest that the asteroid impact may have accelerated the volcano explosions, and the combined fallout from both catastrophes may have been what ultimately drove the dinosaurs extinct. It’s even possible that the asteroid impact on its own would not have been powerful enough to wipe out the dinosaurs.
