a r t i c l e i n f o Keywords: paleoceanography carbonate sedimentology aqueous geochemistry Observed changes in the source of CaCO 3 sediments since Archean time suggest a first order pattern of decreasing abundance of carbonate cements precipitated directly on the seafloor. We propose that the observed reduction in CaCO 3 precipitation on the seafloor is caused by a decrease in CaCO 3 saturation in sediments related to increased oxic cycling of organic carbon and a decline in the size of the… CONTINUE READING
