The distinctive Mg-smectite that is the predominant clay mineral in the Cretaceous/ Tertiary (K/T) boundary marl at Stevns Klint, Denmark (that is, the Fish Clay), which has been previously believed to have formed from impact-derived Limestone, is also present in the upper of two marls of probable early Danian age at Limhamn Quarry, Sweden, approximately 8 m above the K/T boundary.

The clay mineral assemblages of the Cretaceous and Tertiary sediments are dominated by inherited clays. Aluminium-rich smectite of pedogenic origin is abundant in both Cretaceous and Tertiary sediments, indicating a relatively warm and hydrolysing climate across the K-T boundary.

The Late Cretaceous sedimentary sequence in the Upper Benue Trough consists of seven formations. Outcrop samples from the type localities of these units were analysed by X‐ray diffraction for their day mineral content. The composition and distribution of the clay minerals are influenced by tectonics, relief and water depth. Three main depositional phases are recognizable on the basis of clay ...

Cretaceous - Wikipedia

The Cretaceous (/ k r ə ˈ t eɪ ʃ ə s / krə-TAY-shəs) is a geological period that lasted from about 145 to 66 million years ago (Mya). It is the third and final period of the Mesozoic era, as well as the longest.At nearly 80 million years, it is the longest geological period of the entire Phanerozoic.The name is derived from the Latin creta, "chalk", which is abundant in the latter half ...
