Palaeogravity calculations based on weight and mass estimates of two
Coelophysis bauri specimens

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 Coelophysis bauri specimens AMNH 7223 and AMNH 2704. The results indicate that palaeogravity estimates of 0.44g ± 20% for the AMNH 7223 specimen and 0.42g ± 40% for the AMNH 2704 specimen are reliable estimates for 210 Ma.
