Terrestrial pollen and spores in late Maastrichtian to early Paleocene marine strata at mid‐Waipara, New Zealand, permit reconstruction of contemporary vegetation and paleoclimates.

      The Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction The most famous of all mass extinctions marks the end of the Cretaceous Period, about 65 million years ago. As everyone knows, this was the great extinction in which the dinosaurs died out, except for the birds, of course.   The Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event (abbreviated as K-T extinction) is also known as the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event (abbreviated as K-Pg extinction). 2. This event was responsible for wiping out 3/4 th of all animal and plant species that lived on Earth during that period.

A by-product of the economic survey was a well-documented chronicle of geologic events with some bearing on diastrophic theory, and with special interest in view of Macpherson's recently published outline of diastrophism in New Zealand since the Late Cretaceous 1.

Indeed, the main thesis of Macpherson's paper is that New Zealand constitutes a recurved arc formed in the course of the late Cretaceous and particularly late Tertiary diastrophism.

He rejects the idea of Marshall () that the axial chain continues on a north-east trend towards the Tonga and Kermadec Islands, and in doing so he renders.

By J. KINGMA, New Zealand Geological Survey, Department of. Scientific and Industrial Research; Lower Hutt (Received for publication, 29 July, ) Summary The tectonic history of Kew Zealand falls into two periods of major activity, a late Mesozoic-early Tertiary phase, and a late Tertiary-Quaternary phase.

The. Introduction. The following paper deals with an area previously described as part of the Whangarei-Bay of Islands Subdivision by the late Dr. Ferrar () of the New Zealand Geological Survey, but adds information not available in the Survey Bulletin and deals with certain problems not there discussed.

The writer wishes to acknowledge the hospitality extended to. () interpretation of New Zealand structure, his recurved arc for New Zealand as a whole, still appears essentially valid. Another major contribution to our knowledge of New Zealand structure is the magnificently large-scale feature, the transcurrent.

This peneplain was deformed before the deposition of the Pleistocene Otaki formation, and, in common with some other peneplains recognised in New Zealand, is believed to be later Tertiary in age. Structural relations: In the past, few have speculated on the relationship between Kapiti Island and the structures of adjacent parts of Cook Strait.

Crame, editor., ed., Geological Society Special Publicationpp   The data from the San Juan Basin, New Mexico, shows that the percentage of tree pollen ranges from 70 to 85% in the late Cretaceous and in the early Tertiary assemblages of the region. However, in the boundary sediment, the tree pollen constitutes less than 1% of the assemblage, which consists almost entirely of fern spores.

The Late Cretaceous (–66 Ma) is the younger of two epochs into which the Cretaceous geological period is divided in the geologic time scale. Rock strata from this epoch form the Upper Cretaceous Cretaceous is named after the white limestone known as chalk which occurs widely in northern France and is seen in the white cliffs of south-eastern England, and.

Stepping back in time. During late Paleozoic–early Mesozoic time, the geological setting of New Zealand was very different from that of today (Figs a, b & ).The Late Cretaceous–Holocene plate tectonic development of Zealandia is now quite well understood, taking account of evidence from North and South Island, Zealandia as a whole, and the.

The Cretaceous Period was the third, last and longest interval of the Mesozoic Era, lasted approximately to 66 Ma (79 million years) and witnessed important changes to. Throughout most of New Zealand, this is marked by a contrast in induration between ‘basement’ schists, greywacke and granite, and the overlying Cretaceous–Cenozoic rocks, which include the various coal measure sequences.
