The Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event, now called the Cretaceous–Palaeogene extinction event, was about million years ago. It may be called the K/T extinction event or K/Pg event for short. This is the famous event which killed the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period.. It was a large-scale mass extinction of animal and plant species. The event marks the end of the Missing: Ghana. But this is not the whole story. As indicated earlier, younger Mesozoic and Tertiary rocks more than 1 mile thick that once covered the area have been carried away by erosion, and if we include these the span is increased to about million years, or nearly a full whorl of the spiral.

Post Rift Stage represented by Upper Cretaceous to Tertiary sequences Studies by Abu et al.

The rocks and sediments of the Cretaceous System show considerable variation in their lithologic character and the thickness of their sequences.

Mountain-building episodes accompanied by volcanism and plutonic intrusion took place in the circum-Pacific region and in the area of the present-day Alps. The erosion of these mountains produced clastic sediments—such as conglomerates, sandstones, Missing: Ghana.

The Late Cretaceous 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 series. The 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 which dates from this time.
