Under- and above-water volcanism lead to an ice age
Here's another article on the same subject:
"Volcanic 'flood' linked to extinction"
"A huge outpouring of molten rock 250 million years ago may have been the decisive factor in the deaths of nearly all life forms on the Earth at that time," says a recent article in the journal Science.
The flood basalts at the Siberian Traps covered around 3.9 million square kilometers, says Marc Reichow, of the University of Leicester, UK., an area much larger than previously believed.
studies suggest that the "volcanic flood" was about one mile
deep, and covered an area half the size of Australia.
