Hi, Here is Jurassic period and I'm dinosaur which you hope to see.
Hi, I'm a dinosaur from Jurassic. The Jurassic Period was the second segment of the Mesozoic Era. It occurred from 199.6 to 145.5 million years ago, following the Triassic Period and preceding the Cretaceous Period.
Let's explore together!
The Jurassic period is really important to consider because there had a lot of continental configurations, oceanographic patterns, and biological systems shifting.
The hint is hidden in the movement of the continent!
In the lecture, I learned that the period before the Jurassic which is the Triassic period was really dry and hot, so I thought the Jurassic also has the same kind of temperature. However, here is so wetter and more humid. Why?
movement of the continent....???
Yes, the movement of the continent happened at the start of the Jurassic period and impacted so much for the current climate. The continent called supercontinent Pangaea was continued breakup and accelerated the speed it. By doing so, more land and coastlines were created to the Jurassic, and the ocean that you seeing now becomes more widespread and sea levels were increased.
I see. So, these increased in sea levels caused a rise in Jurassic humidity levels, which made a big difference between the Triassic and Jurassic.
