Scientists Doing Science Stuff: K-T Boundary Part 3

This geology article is technical in nature. In two previous articles 1, 2 Michael Oard discussed the possible boundary for the Noachian Flood. 

Creationist geologist Michael Oard discussed the possible boundary for the Noachian Flood.

Here, he spells out his disagreement with other creationist geologists ("I documented that among creationists there are several major Flood models with variable ideas. For the time being and in face of many geological and geophysical unknowns, such a situation is healthy, according to the principle of multiple working hypotheses").
Two evidences commonly presented for the Cretaceous/Tertiary (K/T) boundary being the location of the Flood/post-Flood boundary are: (1) Tertiary volcanism in the northwest United States, and (2) the cooling of ocean basalt while the continents rise. However, a close analysis of these suggests that they raise more questions than they answer and ignore contrary evidence, which supports the idea that the end of the Flood corresponds to the Late Cenozoic.
