Abstract Episodes of widespread distribution of organic-rich marine facies within relatively narrow stratigraphic intervals have been interpreted as Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs). There are a number of such intervals in the Upper Cretaceous, some of which also exhibit significant positive excursions in carbon isotope records. As a result, a general model of the relationship between enhanced organic carbon burial and positive C-isotope shifts has emerged. Carbon isotope stratigraphy has… CONTINUE READING
