  Information - SSP24 From black shales to oceanic red beds in the Cretaceous - IGCP 463 and IGCP 494

Event Information
A major change in oceanic sedimentation from sediments enriched in organic carbon to oceanic red beds, mainly red shales and marls, occurred in the world oceans during the Cretaceous. A variety of processes such as organic carbon drawdown, tectonic, palaeoceanographic, eustatic, paleoclimatic changes or a combination of any above could cause such a change from black shales to red pelitic deposits devoid of any carbon. Papers and posters on various aspects of stratigraphy, paloceanography and geochemistry of anoxic to oxic sedimentation are invited.
