There is a strong correlation between continental flood basalts and mass extinctions (Courtillot, 1994).
The three largest known mass extinctions coincide with the three largest Phanerozoic flood basalt provinces (P-Tr - Siberian Traps; Tr-J - CAMP; K-T - Deccan), within error of the sampling and dating methods.
How do we know this and how do we know the ages of other events in Earth history?
This suggests accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The flux rate from a single flow is relatively small, but over millenia substantial amounts of COmolecules in this system.It is also worth mentioning that some flood basalts (e.g.
