Below is an interesting paper, with PDF files online, 

about the role of contact metamorphism of evaporites

and organic rich strata by the Siberian Traps and

the end-Permian extinctions.

Missed the RSL piece,apparently.:P:mellow:

Emeishan should be mentioned in this context,as well

Nice post,BTW:dinothumb:
