Stothers, R.B., 1993: Impact cratering at geologic stage boundaries. Geophys. Res. Lett., 20, 887-890, doi:10.1029/93GL00907.

The largest known Cenozoic impact craters with the most accurately measured ages are found to correlate very closely with geologic stage boundaries. The level of confidence in this result is 98-99% even under the most pessimistic assumptions concerning data errors. One or more large impacts may have led, in at least some cases, to the extinctions and first appearance of biotic species that mark many of the geologic stage boundaries.
