PALAEOCEANOGRAPHY OF MESOZOIC RIBBON RADIOLARITES

Abstract:

Mesozoic ribbon radiolarites have no parallel in rocks cored from extant ocean basins; their mineralogy is comparable but their repetitively bedded aspect is unique. The peculiarities of the chert-argillite couplet we relate primarily to variations in surface-water productivity on a tens-of-thousands-of-years scale, to a lesser extent to redeposition from turbidity and particularly bottom currents, and diagenesis, the latter being accentuated by the pressure-temperature gradients imposed duri...
