A palaeogravity calculation based on
weight and mass estimates of
Acrocanthosaurus atokensis

by

Stephen W. Hurrell



Abstract

There is great interest in calculating accurate values for Earth’s palaeogravity. One fundamental technique to quantify palaeogravity is to compute weight against mass estimates of ancient animals. This technique is applied to the theropod dinosaur Acrocanthosaurus atokensis “Fran” NCSM 14345 specimen. The results indicate that a palaeogravity of 0.54g ± 20% is a reliable estimate for 113 Ma.
