A Palaeogravity calculation based on weight and mass estimates of Ankylosaurus magniventris

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 the quadrupedal armoured dinosaur Ankylosaurus magniventris AMNH 5214 specimen. The results indicate a palaeogravity of 0.69g ± 20% is a reliable estimate for 67 Ma.
