It was later proposed on the basis of modelling experiments that large impacts could have caused Neoproterozoic glaciation (Bendtsen & Bjerrum 2002; Fawcett & Boslough 2002). The models suggest that short-term (,10 year) shielding of sunlight by ejecta from a Cretaceous –Tertiary sized impact could cause the ocean surface to freeze over if seawater was as cold as today, unlike the Cretaceous ocean, which was 8– 128 warmer than present.
