Meteoritic trigger for Global Mass Wasting During the Middle Ordovician Disputed

Meteoritic trigger for Global Mass Wasting During the Middle Ordovician Disputed

The association of widespread mass wasting along 
Middle Ordovician continental margins with a period
of high meteorite influx is disputed in a recent paper
in Gondwana Research. The paper is:

Meinhold, G., A. Arslan, O. Lehnert, and G. M. Stampfli,
2011, Global mass wasting during the Middle Ordovician: 
Meteoritic trigger or plate-tectonic environment?
Gondwana Research. vol. 19, no. 2, pp. 535-541.
