Abstract

Draws on a detailed study of a dark shale interval around the Cenomanian-Turonian boundary in western United States. There, careful collecting on the scale of centimeters disclosed a rich variety of trace and body fossils whose distribution can be used to reconstruct a history of variations in oxygenation that is much more dynamic than would be expected from the stagnant basin model. -from Authors
