A Palaeogravity calculation based on weight and mass estimates of Euoplocephalus tutus

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 quadrupedal armoured dinosaur Euoplocephalus tutus AMNH 5404 specimen. The results indicate a palaeogravity of 0.65g ± 20% is a reliable estimate for 76 Ma.

Key Words:  Palaeogravity, Euoplocephalus tutus
