New Papers on Triassic - Jurassic Extinctions and Boundary

New Papers on Triassic - Jurassic Extinctions and Boundary

The latest issue, vol. 244, no. 1-4 (February 9,
2007), of Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology,
Palaeoecology is devoted to “Triassic-Jurassic
Boundary events: problems, progress, possibilities”.
It contains a number of papers, which discuss the
various theories about what created the Triassic
- Jurassic extinctions. The table of contents can be
found at:

They include:

Hesselbo, S. P., McRoberts, C. A., and Palfy, J., 2007,
Triassic–Jurassic boundary events: Problems, progress,
possibilities. Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology,
Palaeoecology. vol. 244, no. 1-4 , pp. 1-10.

In the above paper, they stated:

"The debate about extraterrestrial versus volcanic drivers
for environmental change has not yet been concluded, and
it is noteworthy that all of the candidate indicators of
extraterrestrial impact - reports of PGE's and soft sediment
deformation - occur shortly prior to CAMP volcanic activity.
Pure coincidence aside, this observation keeps alive the idea
that there is an 'impact signal'-LIP connection, even if the
mechanisms remain highly controversial; for example,
impact decompression melting, as recently articulated by
Elkins-Tanton and Hager (2005), or lithospheric gas
explosion (Phipps Morgan et al., 2005)."

Another paper is:

Michalíka, J., Lintnerovab, O., Gadzickic, A., and Sotakd,
J., 2007, Record of environmental changes in the Triassic-
Jurassic boundary interval in the Zliechov Basin, Western
Carpathians. Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology,
Palaeoecology. vol. 244, no. 1-4 pp. 71-88.

This paper states:

“The negative delta 13C excursion is correlated with a
positive delta 18O peak and the beds containing the
excursion are overlain by a thin layer with unusual
lithological and mineral composition. This layer is
composed of small calcitized microspheres showing
complex alteration during diagenesis. The origin of this
layer, traceable over tens of kilometres, is problematic
(impact ejecta, volcanic glass, or altered aragonitic

Alleged Meteorites and Craters Found Near Egyptian Pyramids

Alleged Meteorites and Craters Found Near Egyptian Pyramids

Does anyone know what the below research is about?

Meteorites from under the pyramids, "mp, tr.ajfb krx",
AGH University of Science and Technology

In part the article stated:

"According to "Dziennik Polski", the scientists were
intrigued by some unusual structures, which resembled
craters formed after meteorites hit the ground. They
noticed them when analysing satellite pictures of areas
north of the great pyramids in Giza."

“We found very solid metallic fragments in this area.
These are probably meteorite fragments” – says Prof.
Maciej Pawlikowski from the Mineralogy, Petrography
and Geochemistry department at AGH University, who
was the supervisor and main organiser of the
geological expedition. “We hope that further tests on
the patina covering the rocks, which formed during
the meteorites’ fall, will help us to establish the
exact time of the event” – the scientists said."

According to the article;, they found the alleged
craters and meteorite fragments as part of expedition
to study "geoglyphics'. They are described as
"gigantic pictures on the ground" which are located
east of Cairo and consist of "two several-kilometre-
long curved lines, which almost meet in one point"
and "look like a huge drawing of a scarab".

Does anyone have the latitude and longitude for
either the alleged "craters" or alleged "geoglyphic"?
