Great Dying Causes: Mass Extinction That Wiped Out Species Was Driven By Volcanic Eruption China Study Finds

About 250 million years ago, ‘Pralaya’ came on the earth and 90 percent of the creatures died in it. For the last several years, scientists were trying to find out what was the reason for this cataclysm. Now Chinese scientists have come to know about this. Scientists say that there was a volcanic eruption 250 million years ago, due to which the freezing cold started on the earth. 90% of the animals were killed in this.
The Chinese Academy of Sciences has concluded this by studying copper deposits in the Sichuan province of southern China. The widespread anomalies in these rocks suggest that they were affected by sulfur-laden emissions that emanated from a nearby volcano. These rocks were surrounded by layers of ash emanating from the volcano. When the sulfur aerosols reached the atmosphere, they sent the rays coming from the sun back into space.
The temperature dropped to 4 °C for some time
This also changed the clouds. With the return of the sun’s rays, the temperature on the earth dropped drastically. About 90 percent of the creatures died due to the icy environment. Researchers believe that due to the volcanic eruption in China, the average temperature on the earth had dropped to 4 degrees Celsius for some time. The team of researchers said that volcanic eruptions from sulfur killed so many people 250 million years ago.
The author of the paper, Michael Rampino, said that in our discovery it has been found that all kinds of creatures died due to this environmental disaster. 9 out of every 10 living beings on earth died. This cataclysm came at the end of the Permian period and the beginning of the Triassic period. Only 10 percent of the people and plants that survived on the earth gave birth to the present animals and plants. During this explosion, the whole earth was covered with ash.
