CARBON-ISOTOPE AND OXYGEN-ISOTOPE STRATIGRAPHY OF THE ENGLISH CHALK AND ITALIAN SCAGLIA AND ITS PALEOCLIMATIC SIGNIFICANCE

Abstract:

A detailed carbon- and oxygen-isotope stratigraphy has been generated from Upper Cretaceous coastal Chalk sections in southern England and the British Geological Survey (BGS) Trunch borehole, Norfolk. Data are also presented from a section through the Scaglia facies exposed near Gubbio, Italian Apennines. Both the Chalk and Scaglia carbon-isotopic curves show minor positive excursions in the mid-Cenomanian, mid- and high Turonian, basal Coniacian and highest Santonian-lowest Campanian; there ...
