Edward Anders (left), the Horace B. Horton Professor of Chemistry at the University of Chicago, with co-researchers Wendy S. Wolbach (center) and Roy S. Lewis (right). A sample of clay from Demark held by Ms. Wolbach, is said to contain high amounts of soot and charcoal. This finding suggests that wildfires spread worldwide, possibly ignited by a meteorite striking the Earth, which may in turn have caused the extinction of the dinosaurs.
