Cyclostratigraphy and the Early Jurassic timescale: Data from the Belemnite Marls, Dorset, southern England

Abstract:

Time series based on determinations (wt%) of calcium carbonate and total organic carbon have been generated for the entire Lower Jurassic hemipelagic Belemnite Marls, Dorset, southern Britain. This formation was deposited during early Pliensbachian time, at a paleolatitude of about 35°N, in an epicontinental sea that was largely enclosed by the supercontinent of Pangea.
