The best example is the K/T boundary section in Lattengebirge (Bavarian Alps), where three iridium anomalies were determined below, above and at the K/T boundary [Graup, Spettel, 1989]. Taking into account the importance of iridium study we repeated the sampling and analysis of Ir in the Gams section both as a whole and at the transitional layer. 4). 4). 5.
Solar helium is supplied by cosmic dust particles less than 50 µm in size, because larger particles are degassed due to heating when they enter the atmosphere. Farley emphasized (and this is important) that, as compared with Ir, 3 He is a more sensitive indicator of cosmic dust present in a rock and noted the absence of correlation between 3 He and Ir concentrations. 86×10−12 cm3 /g, which is more than an order of magnitude smaller compared to Farley’s data [Farley, 1995].
