Abstract A geochemical and micropaleontological study of the Waipawa Formation in New Zealand was undertaken to investigate its depositional setting and possible relationship to major changes in the marine environment. The organic-rich formation was deposited in the Late Paleocene, during a third-order, eustatic sea-level rise. Precise age control is lacking, but deposition can be placed between a climatic cooling at 59.1 Ma and a thermal maximum at 55.5 Ma, during the transition from cold to… CONTINUE READING
