Online: Strawberry Bank – exceptionally preserved fossils in geological context

The astounding three-dimensional preservation of the Strawberry Bank fossils is a consequence of environmental conditions during a relatively short time period during the Toarcian stage of the Lower Jurassic. However, these conditions were not unique, because exceptionally preserved fossils from the same time are known from a number of other places around the World, including regionally in North Yorkshire and Germany, and further afield in Canada.

This talk examines what might have led to the widespread occurrence of exceptional preservation at the time, very likely a consequence of global warming due to the eruption of huge volumes of lava in the Southern Hemisphere, the so-called Karoo-Ferrar Large Igneous Province.
