TOARCIAN ANOXIC EVENT IN EUROPE - AN ORGANIC GEOCHEMICAL STUDY

Abstract:

A total of 48 sediment samples, comprising both black shales and associated organic-poor interbeds, were examined from Toarcian organic-rich sections throughout Europe. Despite being contemporaneous deposits of a single oceanic anoxid event (OAE), the molecular organic geochemical characteristics, particularly the steroidal hydrocarbons, of the black shales are highly variable. This suggests different depositional environments in different regions. Although the sedimentary organic matter is d...
