There is no doubt that Earth’s history has been marked by several intriguing and exciting events that have shaped life on our planet. These events have led to the emergence of new life or the complete annhilation of certain species. One such remarkable occurrence was the Carnian pluvial event (CPE), also known as the Carnian crisis, which took place around 232 million years ago. This was a period of continuous rain that lasted 1-2 million years, and played a pivotal role in the evolution of life on Earth, particularly during the emergence of dinosaurs and other terrestrial fauna.
