Sedimentary Iron Cycling and the Origin and Preservation of Magnetization in Platform Carbonate Muds ,

Abstract

Carbonate muds deposited on continental shelves are abundant and well-preserved throughout the geologic record because shelf strata are difficult to subduct and peritidal carbonate units often form thick, rheologically strong units that resist penetrative deformation. Much of what we know about pre-Mesozoic ocean chemistry, carbon cycling, and global change… (More)
