A Palaeogravity calculation based on weight and mass estimates of Gigantoraptor erlianensis

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 gigantic bird-like dinosaur Gigantoraptor erlianensis LH V0011 specimen. The results indicate a palaeogravity of 0.61g ± 20% is a reliable estimate for 80 Ma.
